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.

Smooth fruity and with a touch of spice. Gorgeous stuff!

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,
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 !!!

Lovely.

William,
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.

Smooth, but a bit too light. A good scotch for those looking for something not abrasive or drink much whisky...

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.
