"Tangy orange on the nose, the malt amplified by a curious saltiness on the palate. 84 points"Jim Murray, 2013, Whisky Bible, p.38
Auchroisk works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.
A little known resident of Speyside.
Mild, sweet and fresh. Ground almonds, even dry marzipan, with some dark chocolate that eventually becomes nuttier.
Smooth, with a light to medium body.
Takes a fair amount of water. Light and fresh; pleasant mouthfeel. Sweetish start, some acidity.
Surprisingly dry, fairly short – all well balanced.

"This version is not obviously sherryish, but still manages very big flavours indeed. I'm very impressed."
Michael Jackson 2001, Whisky Magazine, Issue 20
"Malt and spice on the light nose, with developing nuts and floral notes. Quite voluptuous on the palate, with fresh fruit and milk chocolate. Raisins in the finish."
Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.75
"Young and zesty and citrusy on the nose, warming tangerine and citrus fruits and a touch of salt on the palate, medium long malty finish."
Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.75
