Description

This dram makes me feel like I’m sitting in front of a warm log fire whilst outside the wind blows a gale, the rain falls and the temperature drops. The TV is on and I’m watching my favourite football team win 5.0 against their biggest rivals and their star player has just got sent off for diving in the penalty area. It doesn’t get any better. Palate - Fast, sweet arrival with fruitful tannins and a dry fruity complexity. Something citrus'y in here as well. Balance: There is a good transition of aromas and flavours between nose, palate, and finish. I found most flavours to be consistently present, without being in competition with one another.

Nice aroma of malt, savory spices, fruit, butterscotch, overripe citrus and a general oily earthiness. It’s not super complex, but it has a nice weight to it that makes it come across as bold.

On the palate, more dark fruits, Christmas cake and baked apples (some cherries as well). More vanilla and toffee. Spicy, with pepper and ginger. Smoother with water. Also very nice - and straightforward.

Auchentoshan History Timeline". Auchentoshan.co.uk. Archived from the original on 7 December 2008 . Retrieved 24 December 2008. Whiskybase B.V. is the Dutch private limited liability company, having its statutory seat in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and its office at Zwaanshals 530, 3035 KS Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Whiskybase B.V. is registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under no. 52072819. But, it’s true to say that in Scotland currently, only Auchentoshan utilises triple distillation exclusively. Likewise, all of its production is used for single malt rather than blending. When compared to the ‘other’ current commonly available triple distilled spirit – Hazelburn, Auchentoshan’s production methods are starkly different – whilst Hazelburn runs a blank second distillation (no cuts are made) to increase the volume of heavier compounds within its make, Auchentoshan takes a single cut from the second distillation. This is passed to the spirit still at high strength, whilst the lower strength cut is redistilled in the intermediate still. The result has less reflux than Hazelburn and an overall lighter style of make.

If i had to choose this over the Glendronach 12, I'd take this. The Glendronach was a slight disappointment (despite the fact I gave it a higher rating.) Without prejudice to the section Liability below, the Service may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance, updates, etc. We shall make reasonable efforts to inform you of any unavailability due to maintenance or updates. Now that the temps have dropped I thought it would be a good idea to open up something new, and what better then a bottle that's been sitting in the cabinet for over 3 years. Nose is lemon citrous, honey, light fresh white oak, toasted almonds, some light spice, pepper and ginger. light barley. Also some crystallised stem ginger. Auchentoshan 12 Years is the entry malt for the Auchentoshan distillery which is one of only 3 remaining Lowlands distilleries after the whisky market crash that caused a rash of distillery closures in 1983. Like many of the now defunct Lowlands distilleries, Auchentoshan practices a triple distillation which is a fairly common practice in Ireland, but much less so in Scotland where the majority of distilleries practice a 2x distillation.

Types of whisky

Nose: Toffee, fudge with orange elbowing its way between them. A very full flavoured aroma that I could sniff for ages. At the same time I've been planning to send some whisky samples to my friend and fellow Connosr member, Systemdown, as he had the good idea that exchanging samples would be a good way to experience more whiskies for much cheaper. Finish: Quite long and satisfying, the toffee and fudge remain and I get a lingering feeling of warmth and all being right in the world.
