In Gaelic, "auchroisk" means a shallow ford over the red stream. Once across, you'll feel like Julius Caesar when he crossed the Rubicon—victorious and irrevocably committed to a revolutionary course of action or as is the case here, to exceptional taste.

Deer, Bear & Moose spotted yet another formidable Whisky stronghold for you to conquer. Rich in taste and aroma, and ready for the taking. But don't let all this war talk scare you, because what we’re implying is a conquest of a romantic nature. Whitney Houston in the background? Optional.

This feisty fella’ matured for 19 years in Bourbon casks and it shows. Oak has a formidable presence from start to finish. It's lavish with nutty fruit flavors and laced with a sliver of spice that turns things up to a solid 11. A Whisky that is pure, strong and true.

Auchroisk distillery produced its first spirit in '74, but unlike other distilleries built at the time, they knew they had what it takes to make a single malt from the start. And their conviction paid off in spades—our seal of approval isn't handed out lightly, or often. Ladies and gents. The die has been cast.

Flavorful-nutty-fruity-smoky - a bit surprising for a Spreyside- with a nice clean finish.

Michael,
So glad I took a chance on this. I'm an Islay guy, but this is such a wonderful and complex dram. Warm and spice, wonderful finish, full of oak. Maybe the best Speyside I have ever had...

Matthew,
You chew this stuff. It stimulates the whole mouth. Don't add water.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Amazing, when the first taste hit my pallet I tasted butterscotch, nutty, zesty, lemon, and then spice. The after taste was great and left me wanting more. I am extremely glad that I took the leap and got this one.

Trygve,
Wonderful, I am a long time Islay fan. that being said this Speyside creation is one of the few Scotch's that to me truly has layers, but it does need in my opinion just a splash of water to truly be enjoyed.
