Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif.
  • Nose : fin, poudré. Très nuancé, il révèle tour à tour, le chocolat au lait, le cacao, le lait d’amande et la cannelle. Gourmand (poudre de riz, caramel au beurre salé), il est également floral (lys, gardénia) et exotique (mangue). Chaleureux, il est rafraîchi par des notes de crème fraîche et de citron vert.
  • Palate : nette, expressive. Elle fait également preuve de beaucoup de complexité. Des fruits exotiques (goyave, kaki), des agrumes (mandarine, orange), des fleurs capiteuses (tubéreuse, iris) et des épices (ginseng, gingembre) prolongent la palette aromatique. Le tabac frais et le foin coupé ajoutent une touche végétale et herbacée.
  • Overall : longue, équilibrée. Elle oscille entre l’orge maltée, les fruits mûrs (mirabelle, pomme), les épices douces (cumin, coriandre frais) et des notes de sel. Empyreumatique (eucalyptus), elle n’arrive pas à choisir entre d’une part, son caractère juvénile d’une grande fraîcheur d’expression et d’autre part, sa maturité resplendissante et chaleureuse.
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.


Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.

The line

Launched in 1998, the Old Malt Cask range, consisting of 50 casks, was bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this family-run business. Today more than a hundred releases are permanently available. Most of these are single casks that have been bottled without colouring or filtering and contain 50% ABV; they are considered to be the ‘golden strength’ by purists. In addition to the traditional releases at 50% ABV, there are some cask strength bottlings, created especially for La Maison du Whisky.
