Auchroisk (pronounced ar-thrusk) is a little known distillery based in Speyside. It is owned by multinational drinks giant Diageo and is one of the newest distilleries in Scotland, only opening in 1974. The reason that it is little known is probably down to the fact that most of the whisky produced there (around 3.5 million litres per year) gets put into blended whiskies.
Nose - Aromatic freshness of citrus (lemon zest), caramel, coconut and maybe a hint of liquorice.
Taste - Very fresh with the underlying taste being of the malted barley. Fruitiness (raisins) and sweetness, some vanilla and toffee.
Palate - Quite dry with a lasting maltiness and something herbal (freshly cut grass.)
