All about making whisky
A must have LMDW“ One usually associates triple distillation with the smooth, fruity whiskeys of Ireland. At La Maison du Whisky there is another distillery that also comes to mind: Auchentoshan. Somewhat challenging in terms of pronunciation, it nonetheless produces an exceptionally fine single malt. Fruity and floral, the 12 year old reveals tremendous smoothness and could even be said to have a slightly Irish character. A blend of whiskies finished in bourbon and sherry casks, La Maison du Whisky is the exclusive importer and distributor of Auchentoshan in France.
Auchentoshan 12 year old is the eponymous distillery’s benchmark whisky. Triple distilled and aged in sherry and bourbon casks, this single malt is characterised by a generous bouquet and floral notes on the palate. Subtle and delicate, it offers a brilliant illustration of this Lowland single malt’s trademark style.
Style: Floral and generous. Nose: Toffee and hazelnuts. Palate: Flowers, honeysuckle, iris and lavender. Finish: Malted barley and spices.
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.
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.
