Auchentoshan 12 Years Old

5

700 ml
  • Sweet and Lowdown


    Antique records from the year 1800 mention an (illegal) Duntocher distillery, which may have been a predecessor to the legal Auchentoshan distillery. A license for distillation was obtained in 1823. Auchentoshan distillery is one of only 3 remaining Lowlands distilleries after the whisky market crash that caused a rash of distillery closures in 1983. It is also known as “Glasgow’s Malt Whisky” because it’s located near Glasgow. Also known as “the breakfast whisky” because of its sweet and delicate nature. Auchentoshan means 'Corner of the Field' in Gaelic.


    Auchentoshan practices a triple distillation which is a fairly common practice in Ireland, but much less so in Scotland where the majority of distilleries practice a 2x distillation. This makes its whiskies sweet and more delicate, which is unique. The triple distillation method lead Auchentoshan to be a favored whisky among blenders because of its light blendable quality.


    Auchentoshan 12 Years is the entry malt for the Auchentoshan distillery. Matured 80% refill and 20% first fill sherry wood, Auchentoshan 12 yrs is an OK dram. Even though it is light, it manages to offer nice flavors, without being too stingy. This Lowland Single Malt Scotch has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.

  • Nose

    Nice aroma of malt, savory spices, fruit, butterscotch, overripe citrus and a general oily earthiness. It’s not super complex, but it has a nice weight to it that makes it come across as bold.

  • Palate

    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.

  • Finish

    Medium length and malty with notes of buttered toast and toffee.
