Our Whiskies of Scotland shop - situated in Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland - has brought out its own collection which consists of limited edition, exclusive, multi-award winning bottlings sourced from Scotland's finest distilleries.
The Singleton was a brand name associated for many years with Auchroisk. Supposedly because Auchroisk was deemed too difficult a name for the average punter to pronounce. The bottlings done under that name are often fine drams, with big notes of honey, herbs, vanilla, garden fruits and often a little smoke.
The closest things to a proper official bottling are a 10yo 'Flora & Fauna' bottling and a 28yo whisky from 1974 in the 'Rare Malts' range. Sometimes independent bottlings like the 26yo bottling from Signatory Vintage are released - but those are relatively rare. Based on my experiences so far, most are not really worth the trouble of tracking down a bottle, but even the most modest distillery can have a few magical casks stacked away somewhere.

50cl / 44.70% - The first batch of Auchroisk (say 'Othrusk') from That Boutique-y Whisky Company and what a label. Rarely released as a single malt, this Speyside distillery has very little do with the impending Zombie Apocalypse but we thought it was about time one of our whiskies featured some zombies. One of them even looks a bit like Master of Malt's Tom in fancy dress. Probably a coincidence though... This is a release of 127 bottles.That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles single malts, blended...
Through the smoke and nutty sweetness, comes the unmistakeable feel of Dories silky water, followed by a dry, well balanced finish. The unusual name, Auchroisk, means "Ford of the Red Stream" in Gaelic, referring to the Mulburn Burn from which the distillery draws its cooling water. However, the principal reason for the sitting of the distillery is the Dories Well; an abundant source of soft, pure spring water.
Strength: 43% ABV. Appearance: Gold. Nose: Zesty, nutty and malty. Palate: Starts sweet, moving to big appetising fruit flavours. Soft. Finish: Cereal hints, soft and dry. Touch of peat. Comment: This single malt lies at the heart of the Auchroisk range, it being the only official bottling. Released in the Flora and Fauna series in 2001, having previously been sold as The Singleton of Auchroisk. Auchroisk, pronounced "Auch Roysk", means 'ford of the red stream'. The distillery is on the main road...

Building plots in an attractive semi rural position on the edge of Cromdale. There are 8 serviced plots for sale and they are ready for development following detailed Planning Permission. Situated within the Cairngorm National Park Cromdale is about 3 miles from Grantown on Spey.
Palate : Initially cool, smooth and sweet, with fresh acidity and a mouth-filling texture, then warming, with smoky charred fruit, as in a burnt fruit-cake. With a little water, less voluptuous though still cooling and coating; it’s not so sweet now as the perfume grows and there’s an attractive dry nuttiness developing into dark chocolate, with hints of menthol and a grating of orange zest. Still smooth, fresh and well balanced, with a pleasing chewy texture
