Mossburn Vintage Casks No 10 Auchroisk 2007 is a third party bottling of Speyside Single Malt Whisky. It is part of Mossburn’s Vintage Casks range, a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks.
Mossburn Distillers & Blenders is a brand new Scotch whisky project owned by Marussia Beverage which is part of the empire controlled by Swedish billionaire Frederik Paulsen. The company is headquartered at Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders on the site of the former Jedforest Hotel. Their new distillery, called Reivers Distillery, will be one of the first new distilleries to be built in the Borders for over 150 years. Mossburn have also established Torabhaig Distillery on the Isle of Skye, which opened in 2017 (the second distillery on Skye after Highland Park). The parent company also own the Kaikyo Distillery in Japan which produces Hatozaki whiskies. Not content with this, they have also created the peaty Caisteal Chamuis whisky range. The first Mossburn bottlings were released in 2017.
Building a whisky distillery and waiting for whisky to come online (the spirit has to be aged for at least 3 years before it can even be called whisky) is a long term project. So, in the meantime, Mossburn have started the ball rolling by bottling a small collection of ever-changing single malt whiskies and two permanent blended malts, an Island and Speyside, with bespoke cask bills. There are also some very limited occasional single cask bottlings.
The Auchroisk distillery is located in Mulben, Banffshirem Speyside. The distillery was founded in 1972 by Justerini and Brooks and was established after Dorie’s Well was discovered and found to have water similar to the water used by the Glen Spey distillery, which was used by Justerini & Brooks (who are owned by Digeo) to produce malt whisky for their blended whiskies. Auchroisk uses eight “lampglass-shapes stills to produce a characterful spirit that lightens with age.
Mossburn Vintage Casks No 10 Auchroisk was distilled in 2007 and bottled in 2018 as an 11 year old. The whisky was aged in American oak casks. Bottled at 57.4% ABV without any colouring or chill filtration.
The Bordeaux barrels lends the Mossburn Vintage Casks No 30 Auchroisk 2007 bottling a touch of vinosity, sweet red fruit jam and some tannic spice.
