From Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask range. This range is usually bottled at a preferred strength of 50%, known as "golden strength", as it is believed this strength allows the drinker to experience the malt in its full and redolent glory. This bottle is slightly below, at 43.8%.

Built in 1972 to produce single malt whisky for blends such as J&B, Auchroisk was the first single malt to be bottled under 'The Singleton' banner.

The maturation process involved the 10-year-old Bourbon-matured whisky being moved into Sherry casks for two years, making it among the first examples of finishing.
