Four Styles 2012 The Oaky
Founded in 1972, Auchroisk released its first single malt in 1986. Until 2002, this malt was known as Singleton. In 2005, the distillery was closed for five months for renovation work. A young Speyside single malt from Auchroisk, The Oaky is one of four whiskies in La Maison du Whisky's Four Styles series.
The powerful initial nose is peppery, mentholated and vanilla. Allowed to breathe, it becomes particularly fruity (plum, pear), woody and honeyed. The rich attack is then spicy.
