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. Since 2001, the Singleton name was abandoned and Auchroisk began using the branding of the Flora & Fauna series.

A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt from Auchroisk, an active distillery on Speyside, which is rarely seen as a single malt. The 30 year old marks the second limited release in this series. It is also the oldest Auchroisk ever released by the distillers.

Interesting to compare with the 20 year old, released in 2010.
