Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : riche, concentré et fin à la fois. Le nez propose une succession de compositions florales toutes plus envoûtantes les unes que les autres. Tout d’abord, un bouquet de fleurs (genêt, lys) jaillit littéralement du verre. Puis, enrobé d’une fine réglisse et de frangipane, il évolue sur les huiles essentielles (concrète d’iris, gardénia). Capiteux à souhait, avec ses notes de pétales de rose et de fruits secs (datte, figue).
  • Palate : vive, puissante. Ses contours fruités (banane, pomme) et floraux sont extrêmement bien dessinés. Charnue, presque voluptueuse, c’est avec rondeur qu’elle diffuse tout son charme. Rigoureuse et exigeante, elle devient de plus en plus épicée (cannelle, muscade, poivre noir).
  • Overall : longue, pleine de sève. Vanillée sans excès. La qualité de son boisé est souligné par juste ce qu’il faut de fumé et de cendré provenant du chêne. La gelée de coing et quelques fruits confits (ananas, citron) assurent un intermède gourmand. En rétro olfaction, l’herbe fraîchement coupée nous ramène à l’essentiel : l’orge maltée.
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.
