Character Goatson
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.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
