This Lowlands malt—one of Scotland’s few triple-distilled whiskies—might be one of the most well-balanced whiskies out there. Tropical fruits like pineapple and mango explode on the nose, while the palate is nutty, backed by baking spices, and just a hint of vanilla. Despite the proof of 40%, this is easy to drink thanks to its viscous mouthfeel. 84 Points Whisky Advocate, July 2019
To The Eye Golden honey.
To The Nose Crème brûlée, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan.
To The Tongue Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime.
To The End Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
Triple distilled then matured for over twelve years. Our Lowland Single Malt Whisky has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste. Distillery Notes
Auchentoshan Distillery was established in the Dunbartonshire estate of Auchentoshan in 1823. Interestingly in March of 1941, three of the warehouses were destroyed by the German Luftwaffe bombing of the Clydebank area. Almost 1 million liters of whisky were lost, one of the truest forms of alcohol abuse. Over the years the distillery has changed hands many times. Most recently 1984 the distillery was acquired by Morrison Bowmore Distillers Ltd, and was extensively refurbished taking care to retain its traditional production methods. Auchentoshan is one of only five Lowland Malt Whisky Distilleries and one of two that are still producing whisky.
The Auchentoshan distillery rests at the foot of the Old Kilpatrick Hills, sourcing its water from Cochna Loch located nearby. The distillery overlooks the famous River Clyde, which was once renowned as the Scottish gateway to the world. River Clyde has long been a busy transportation root for ships carrying both legal and illegal whisky from Clyde to the four corners of the Earth.
