Auchroisk Bourbon Finish Murray McDavid Cask Craft

Since 1994, the company has been at the forefront of whisky maturation, expertly crafting exceptional Scotch whisky by finishing fine spirits in premium oak casks.

The quarter casks from Koval Distillery are compact, efficiently mellowing the Auchroisk spirit to yield a creamy and sweet whisky. This superb single malt Scotch whisky is characterized by fresh flavors of vanilla, crisp apple, sweet mango, and honied cereal.

Auchroisk Distillery

Auchroisk distillery was built in 1972 by International Distillers & Vintners (IDV) with the intention of producing spirit destined for blends. The delicate and elegant palate of Auchroisk whisky became a very important component in the J&B blends. 

When the whisky was released in 1986 it quickly became a favourite among writers and judges. For unknown reasons the whisky was never mass released. In a pioneering move, the 10 year old spirit was moved from ex-bourbon barrels to sherry casks for a further 2 year maturation period. What we now know as 'finishing' or even 'double maturation' was being done by Auchroisk without much fanfare back in the 1980's. It was Balvenie and Glenmorangie distilleries the ones that carried on with this ageing technique and eventually became regarded as the inventors of this process. 

In 2001 the Singleton Auchroisk was pulled out from the market and today the closest thing to an official release is the Flora & Fauna bottling. The distillery's extensive grounds are used by Diageo as a warehousing complex.
