70cl | 40%

Mill it, mash it, malt it! – The key phrase used at the Lowland based Auchentoshan Distillery.

Auchentoshan 12 Year Old, a remarkable single malt whisky from the renowned Auchentoshan Distillery in Scotland. This exceptional expression showcases the distillery’s commitment to craftsmanship, as it is meticulously crafted and aged for 12 years to achieve its remarkable character. With a rich heritage and a distinct production process, Auchentoshan 12 Year Old represents the epitome of Scottish whisky craftsmanship.

Established in 1823, Auchentoshan Distillery has a long-standing history in the heart of Scotland’s Lowland region. Nestled on the outskirts of Glasgow, this distillery draws its water from the Kilpatrick Hills and boasts a unique triple distillation process. This method, unlike the double distillation commonly employed in Scotland, results in a smoother, more delicate spirit with a remarkable depth of flavour.

Auchentoshan 12 Year Old is crafted with great care and attention to detail. The journey begins with carefully selected malted barley, which is milled and mashed to release the sugars necessary for fermentation. The resulting liquid, known as the wort, is then fermented using pure, yeast-rich water sourced from the distillery’s surroundings. The fermented wash is triple distilled in copper pot stills, ensuring the removal of impurities and allowing the rich flavours to develop.

Finally, the whisky is matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, imparting a unique complexity and character.

Tasting Note

On the nose, notes of crisp citrus and gentle vanilla intertwine with a delicate floral sweetness.

The palate reveals layers of smooth toffee, honey, and hints of toasted almonds, creating a harmonious balance of flavours.

The finish is long and satisfying, with a gentle spiciness and a lingering sweetness.
