Auchentoshan Heartwood is everything a single-malt aficionado craves in a signature lowland Whisky, but more… more aroma, more flavor, and just plain more-more of it.
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.
Uncle Flaviar always reminds us to watch out for bottles like this. They are a full liter—not the more common 750ml or chintzy 70cl variety. When you see a full 1L on the bottle, it means that this was made for the travel market and is likely a bit different from anything that you can get at home. Auchentoshan Heartwood is a full liter of glorious lowland Scotch Whisky nectar.
Triple distilled and aged in a classic combination of Oloroso Sherry and ex-Bourbon casks, Auchentoshan Heartwood sings with notes of hazelnut and cafe’ latte with candies orange zest just to make it interesting. In short, it is everything a single-malt aficionado craves in a signature lowland Whisky, but more of it. More aroma, more flavor and just plain more-more of it.
