Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or vif.
  • Nose : Véritable parfum, il embaume la violette, l’iris et la lavande. Soutenu par l’orge en cours de germination, il dévoile également d’agréables notes de sel. Son bucolisme évoque des pâtures recouvertes d’une fine couche de rosée après les premiers frimas de l’automne.
  • Palate : A la fois vive et onctueuse. Oscille entre les agrumes (citron) et la crème au lait. Les fleurs ont libéré leurs miels pour lui procurer beaucoup de consistance. Se prolonge sur une fine amertume presque chocolatée.
  • Overall : Longue, délicate. Le vétiver et le géranium nous renvoient aux parfums du nez. Toujours aussi intense et concentrée, un second souffle lui apporte l’énergie nécessaire pour devenir plus terreuse (racines). Le verre vide est tendrement épicé (gingembre, clou de girofle).
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.
