  • Details

    New make spirit from the Auchroisk Distillery (pronounced 'Oh-Thusk') was entrusted to Gordon & MacPhail in 2009 and filled into refill ex-Bourbon barrel for 11 years, before being transferred to barrels that previously held Cote Rotie red wine. Cote Rotie is a northern Rhone appellation using the Syrah (aka Shiraz) grape, although 20% Viognier can be used as well. The wines tend to be big and bold, but with a softly floral or fragrant edge.

    After drawing out the rich red fruit notes from the wine casks, 2060 bottles were disgorged in November 2022. The end result provides sweet red fruit notes with a touch of citrus and a clean finish that hints at garden mint. It's almost refreshing, but still holds a gentle warmth through the finish. The whisky equivalent of summer pudding!
