The brand

The brand

Auchroisk is among the distilleries built in the 1970s to produce whisky destined for blending by the famous brands. The Auchroisk single malt is still principally used for the J&B blend and only a few official bottlings exist, the first of which was named ‘Singleton’ (not to be confused with Singleton of Dufftown, Glen Ord and Glendullan) because Auchroisk was considered too difficult to pronounce! Independent bottlings generally reveal a silky, sweet character that develops into gorgeous notes of roasted nuts and light smoke.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Of all the existing specialist bottling ranges, Connoisseurs Choice is without doubt the oldest. The label underwent a few changes in the 1980s. Plainer and more restrained, it became two-toned with creams and browns. When segmentation by region of production region was adopted by the whisky industry in the early 1990s, the range changed its identity again. The label now shows a map of the region of Scotland where the malt comes from. To the delight of whisky enthusiasts, the range, which is always evolving, is now bottled at 43% and 46%.
