Meaning ‘Corner of the field’ in Gaelic, that’s left-bottom corner on our flavour map.
Antique records from the year 1800 mention an (illegal) Duntocher distillery, which may have been a predecessor to the legal Auchentoshan distillery. A license for distillation was obtained in 1823. It is the only Scottish distillery left employing a true full-time third distillation. This makes for a sweeter and more delicate Scotch, which is unique. The Distillery is located near Glasgow (that's why it's also known as Glasgow's Malt Whisky) in the Lowland region of Scotland.
Auchentoshan 12 Year Old istriple distilled, and matured for over twelve years. This Lowland single malt Scotch has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
What does Auchentoshan 12 Year Old Whisky taste like?
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Auchentoshan 12 Year Old Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
Absolutely love this whisky, so easy to drink, but with a distinctive taste. Really excellent.
I did like this whisky, even though there was not anything special in it.
One of my favorite scotches so far
Lovley smokey taste to start, gliding into a nice warming cinnamon as it goes down. Finishing with a smooth vanilla.
Smells great but the heavy sherry blast gave me a headache
Not so sweet ,fruity
A friendly Whisky. Fruity, oaky but not bitter and a bit spicy. Not to complex which makes it a nice one to relax, enjoy and not have to think about to much.
A good quality product but not my favorite taste of whiskey
Surprisingly good. Very mellow (little heat) but nice balance and complexity of flavors, including toffee/caramel, and some vanilla. Nose is mostly citrus to me with some bananas. Very pleasing and great for the new Scotch drinker...but something experience Scotch drinkers can definitely enjoy.
Literally the flavour spiral says it all, very sweet, nice butterscotchy flavours, citruses notes, not as spicy as you'd expect a scotch to be, but very distinguished
Really smooth to drink, just missing something that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe a tad bland?
Lovely for the nose with green apples, citrus and caramel,
Initially smooth and sweet with citrus,
Leaves the mouth with a lingering taste of ginger and nuts,
I love this the most (so far). Smooth, carmel, nutty, delicious
Kinda disappointed kinda smooth but too sweet
"Auchentoshan / 40% / 12 y.o."
Nose: Nuts, wood, honey orange, pepper and some sweet spices. [n22]
Taste: Spices and orange pulp. A little bitterness of wood. [t20]
Aftertaste: Short, does not warm at all. Mess of nuts and wood. [f18]
Balance: This is not bad. Nice nose, nuts and oranges came together nicely. The taste is not so good as palate, nothing interesting except for the wood, the orange pulp feels like it is still out of flavor, in the taste of it as if it were not there. Finish in general hat, porridge, nothing expressive, very short and characterless. Well, that did not take the whole bottle. [b20]
Score n + t + f + b: 80.

Thanks to triple distillation it is light but doesn't mean it is lacking flavor. Smooth and rich with a decent amount of sweet caramel notes. A slight peat on the backend with a pleasant linger.
One of the best tasting scotch whiskys I have had in a long time. For a single malt, it's awesome. Triple distilled, smooth, rich oak taste.
Fruity caramel with a nice blend of oak. Very light and easy to drink. A good beginner Scotch.
One of my favorites
Light and floral with a citrusy taste
Smooth and Nice flavor ! Like the smoked afterdrink
nice and light... a little too simple for me. A good choice to start with
Good nose. Smooth and somewhere inbetween a caramel and wood flavor to me.
Very Tasty. My go-to when I'm home.
Tasty, very smooth with a nice nose. I enjoyed it immensely, fruity with a little zip at the end.
Must try the oak one
Love. Dry enough to feel highland, but not so peaty to feel like you're drinking smoke. My new favorite, this one could be dangerous!
Smooth fruity and with a touch of spice. Gorgeous stuff!
It's a light and sweet ride to start, then it opens up a bit in your mouth with a snap of citrus and malt then dries out for the finish to remind you that you just had a nip of good scotch! Really liked it.
This was a pleasant surprise when uncorked....Having recently tasted the older brother (18yr) which was truly delicious, I found the 12 to be of the same smooth character with vanilla and caramel tones shining through !!!
It was sweet and soft to the taste and when I added a drop of water or two the taste was stronger. I got a taste of liquorice.
Had a taste from my wife in Inverness. Was really smooth but almost too light. She has already added some water. Wished I had tried it before she did.
Не достаточно сладко, для чуда. Не моя тема. Больше не брать.
Quite light for my tastes, but quite enjoyable. Not much wood but lots of sherry and fruit notes. My introduction to the Lowlands.
Extremely smooth. Usually dive into bourbons while steering clear of scotch, but my word! What a discovery! Will be purchasing a bottle soon.
Butterscotch, Carmel, spice, just a touch too harsh
Very nice, smooth, not too smokey
Nice smokey and smooth start with a dry finish I like very much so far out of the box I like this one the best
Smooth light mellow best of the first three
Smooth, Carmelly flavor
Once it hits your lips...
Easy to enjoy.
Smooth, but a bit too light. A good scotch for those looking for something not abrasive or drink much whisky...
Smooth, big buttery, green apple. Light but still refreshing.
Straightforward, simple, clean
Very surprised with this whisky. I wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be a rich and complex whisky and a pleasure to drink. Best over ice but also nice neat.
