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 is triple 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.

Bra smak
 
Mike
Mike,
Lovley smokey taste to start, gliding into a nice warming cinnamon as it goes down. Finishing with a smooth vanilla.
 
Michihiro
Michihiro,
Smells great but the heavy sherry blast gave me a headache
 
Antoine
Antoine,
Not so sweet ,fruity
 
Carlos
Carlos,
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.
 
Pio
Pio,
A good quality product but not my favorite taste of whiskey
 
Doug
Doug,
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.
 
Amanda
Amanda,
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
 
Ashley
Ashley,
Really smooth to drink, just missing something that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe a tad bland?
 
David

Pavel
Pavel,
"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. Paul Dvorak [belwhisky.club]
 
Troy
Troy,
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.
 
John
John,
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.

Charis
Charis,
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!
 
Chris
Chris,
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.
 
George
George,
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.

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.
