What was once the last remaining triple distilled malt left in Scotland, Auchentoshan is now the elder states-person of the new growth in Lowlands distilling.
Soft and gentle, no hard edges with a style that will not offend. But a classic in every sense.
From the Whisky Jug, “Similar to the nose the palate comes across oily and filled with notes of malt, overripe fruit, savory spice, butterscotch and brown butter along with a touch of vanilla and that same general oily earthiness. Medium length and malty with notes of buttered toast and toffee”.
Official notes read, “A smooth whisky taste with sweet notes along with hints of tangerine and lime characterise this 12 year old. This particular whisky offers a gingery and slightly dry finish with a pleasant, lingering nuttiness”.
