    Auchroisk appears on its own in the wild occasionally as part of Diageo’s annual limited releases, usually as a 20-year-plus aged single malt, and independent bottlers like Signatory often also release casks of Auchroisk. The distillery’s primary official bottling is this 10-year old expression, which is not exactly a common sight at any whiskey bar. My overall impression of this scotch is that it has the core flavors one would expect of a lightly sherried Highland whiskey: vanilla, honey and apple, some cherry, baking spices, oak, and cereal. It’s better than Glenmorangie because it has a well-balanced finish with no bitterness. Often, I find that the distilleries that aren’t known as single malts are used in blends for a reason, but I’m surprised Diageo doesn’t do more with this one.

    Fresh cut grass, beeswax and lumberwood on the nose. Lemon zest, ginger, and peppery oak spice on the palate. Considerably sour and bitter finish of medium length. Unfortunately, I found this whisky to be unbalanced and unpleasant to drink.

    Definitely the weaker of the three Flora and Fauna whiskies I've sampled, this whisky is marred by an overwhelming and unpleasant aroma of spices. There are also touches of oak, citrus and floral notes, but none of them can salvage this one.

    Little bit of vanilla. Not very fond of this one. Oak cask and a bit dry

    I recently discovered this gem during a whisky weekend getaway. It made me buy a bottle. A beautiful, fresh, zesty number, with enough about it to give that warm satisfaction a decent whisky should, and a decent smooth finish.
