La distillerie Auchroisk
Auchroisk est une des plus jeunes distilleries d’Écosse. La distillerie Auchroisk se situe non loin de Mulben, près de Keith,, dans la région de Moray, sur le Burn of Mulben.
Le single malt d’Auchroisk est toujours utilisé principalement dans le blend J&B et il n’existent que très peu de versions officielles, dont la première était nommée Singleton (à ne pas confondre avec Singleton of Dufftown, Glen Ord et Glendullan), car on estimait qu’Auchroisk était trop difficile à prononcer ! 
Les versions d’Auchroisk des embouteilleurs indépendants révèlent le plus souvent un caractère soyeux et moelleux et développent avec élégance de jolies notes de noix grillée ainsi qu’un léger fumé.

The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.

Notes de dégustation

Colour: Pink gold.
Nose: The nose is sweet and soft with a hint of Porto directly perceptible, but also with fruits: melon, apricot, peach and watermelon. Light hints of clove and dry leather. The smell of malt comes after ventilation.  
Palate: The entrance in mouth is peppery, quickly overtaken by fresh and juicy fruits. Spices are not outdone, with cinnamon on the top.
Finish: The finish is medium. We find the bitterness of apricot and sweet spices slowly die in the throat. There is a pinch of pepper on the tip of the tongue.
