Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : ambre soutenu.
  • Nose : ample, concentré. Le premier nez est à la fois réglissé et fruité (mûre, orange sanguine). Il évolue sur des notes de camphre et sur les épices douces (cannelle, gingembre frais). Une note de glace rhumraisin arrive à point nommé. Il se prolonge sur le tabac à pipe et le miel de bruyère.
  • Palate : onctueuse et en même temps d’une grande fermeté. Les fruits rouges dominent l’attaque en bouche (fraise, framboise, groseille). Originale, elle évoque ensuite du chutney enrichi de cardamome. La fin de bouche est extrêmement florale (rose, pivoine, lilas) et chocolatée tandis que des figues et des dattes renvoient au sherry.
  • Overall : longue, poudrée. Elle propose du cacao et des noix de coco avant de devenir herbacée et végétale (tabac frais). Les fruits rouges brillent toujours par leur présence. La rétro olfaction est superbe de fruité exotique (passion, mangue). Le verre vide est capiteux (lys, chèvrefeuille).
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.
