Auchentoshan 12 yrs – 02 December 2013

Produced at: Auchentoshan Distillery.

Description: A more recent release from the Auchentoshan distillery, replacing the previous staple 10 year old, this 12 year old bottling exhibits the new, slightly Imperial aesthetics Auchentoshan have rebranded themselves with. Triple distilled then matured for over twelve years. Our Lowland Single Malt Whisky has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate.

Type: Whisky/Whiskey, Single Malt Scotch
Expression: Triple distilled
Age: 12 Yrs
ABV: 40%

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Medium amber, copper. I would not bet on caramel here however, medium bodied in the glass.
Nose: Cereals, exotic fruits, crème brulee, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan.
Palate: Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. Tannins, a little sweet barley & vanilla.
Finish: Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
