Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre orangé magnifique.
  • Nose : ample, ferme. Parsemé de fleurs (lilas, lavande, chèvrefeuille, freesia), d’épices (poivre, coriandre, girofle) et de fruits (orange, fraise, melon), le premier nez est une véritable définition d’Auchentoshan. Simultanément, l’influence du vin fait ressortir des notes de sous-bois (lichen, humus, champignons séchés).
  • Palate : concentrée sur son sujet, elle s’appuie sur une trame fermement maltée pour permettre à son tempérament floral et minéral de s’exprimer. En cela, elle se montre légèrement plus austère que le nez. Des notes de tabac à pipe et d’encens font progressivement leur apparition. Des fruits secs (noix, amande) leur emboîtent le pas.
  • Overall : longue, tannique et finement boisée. « Auchentoshan » de bout en bout, elle fait preuve à la fois de fermeté, notamment dans son registre épicé (poivre noir), et d’onctuosité avec ses notes de torréfaction et de loukoum. La rétro-olfaction est marquée par les agrumes (orange) et le verre vide est floral.
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.
