Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or vif à reflets orangés.
  • Nose : Capiteux, concentré. Particulièrement floral (iris, rose, jacinthe), en un mot, Auchentoshan. Des fruits noirs (cassis, cerise) et une minéralité sous-jacente nous emmènent sur les plus belles croupes de graves du Haut-Médoc, plus précisément sur la célèbre commune de Saint-Julien Beychevelle.
  • Palate : Ferme, puissante. Ses épices et ses notes vanillées semblent sorties tout droit d’une barrique bordelaise tandis que ses fruits mûrs évoquent la période des vendanges. Cependant, la région de Glasgow avec son air saturé d’humidité évoquant les aires de maltage reste son point d’ancrage.
  • Overall : Longue, complexe. A son tour, elle est écartelée entre la Clyde et l’estuaire de la Gironde. L’orge maltée, les fleurs, les raisins de Corinthe, le pruneau et la fève de cacao font place aux piments et aux zestes d’agrumes. Le verre vide est vanillé et anisé (badiane).
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.
