Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets topaze.
  • Nose : fin, élégant. D’emblée, il évoque un havane épicé en combustion. Sa cape est marron clair. Il évolue sur les agrumes (citron), les épices (poivre) et sur le parfum envoûtant de la lavande. En toile de fond, des notes d’orge maltée, de cumin et de fruits (noisette) mettent en exergue une éternelle jeunesse.
  • Palate : élégante, complexe. Avec délectation, on savoure ses notes de cake au raisin, de fruits noirs (myrtille, cassis) et de miel d’acacia. Le milieu de bouche est mentholé et empyreumatique (eucalyptus). Elle gagne encore en intensité pour nous offrir des agrumes (citron, orange) et des fleurs capiteuses (pivoine, œillet).
  • Overall : longue, vive. De la marmelade, des épices (girofle, muscade), de nouvelles fleurs (rose, lilas), de la vanille-bourbon, du chocolat noir et des fruits secs (amande, noix) viennent enrichir la palette aromatique et gustative. La rétro olfaction maltée est fringante.
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.
