Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets ambrés.
  • Nose : rond, complexe. Le toffee et la noisette soulignent dans un premier temps l'influence du sherry. Le chèvrefeuille, l'iris et la lavande forment ensuite un bouquet floral. Il se développe sur l'orge en cours de maltage et sur les épices douces (cannelle, cumin).
  • Palate : douce, équilibrée. L'attaque en bouche est maltée et briochée. Les fruits mûrs (pomme, poire) côtoient en milieu de bouche de subtiles notes de menthol, de cire et de noix fraîche. Elle revient en force sur les fleurs capiteuses (violette, lavande) et sur le chocolat noir.
  • Overall : longue, fine. Des notes de moka et de cake pour le côté pâtissier et gourmand. Une fine note salée ajoute une touche dynamique. Bel équilibre boisé/fruité. Floral.
The brand

The brand

Auchentoshan produces the most symbolic of the Lowland single malts. The triple distillation (rare in Scotland) and the distillate’s very high alcohol content enable the production of a fine, subtle, soft and elegant single malt that is often marked by herbal and citrus notes. As well as their standard aged products, Auchentoshan also produces a large number of limited editions, aged in wine or bourbon casks, in vintage and cask strength versions. Valinch, a no-age bottling, bottled without reduction, is highly-reputed amongst a large number of connoisseurs.

The distillery

A model of British industry, Auchentoshan distillery has obtained the Queen’s Award several times. Since 1993, the malt has been traceable to its field and sowing date. Its success has now travelled far beyond Scotland, and has enabled the upholding of a tradition particular to this region. Auchentoshan is the only Scotch single malt to be distilled three times, a practice that dates back to the 19th century. Another remarkable fact is that the middle cut is collected at 82.5%, which is 6% higher than most other Scottish distilleries. Founded in 1817 in Dalmir, the distillery is accessible by train from Glasgow, and receives numerous visitors every year.
