A whiff of delicate fragrance. The slight promise of a heavenly taste in the wind. Just enough to set Deer, Bear & Moose on a wild hunt for what proves to be yet another exceptional addition to our collection.
 
In their crosshairs: this remarkable 20 year old Lowland Whisky. And the big, bold secret hiding under Auchentoshan’s kilt? Triple distillation. It’s their claim to fame. It also helped keep their heads above water when other Lowland distilleries were dropping like flies. Because Auchentoshan is a survivor. And we respect that.
 
Triple-D is what makes Auchentoshan as smooth as any Irish Whiskey, yet, it remains a purebred Scotch—a magnificent find embodying the best of both worlds. Now, triple distilled spirits tend to be somewhat bland. But with 20 years in a barrel, this one’s got enough character to blow the pants off of any true Whisky fan. 
 
Bottled at natural cask strength, this dram is non-chill filtered and features no-added coloring. Which makes it just imperfect enough to be… perfect.
 
What’s that we hear? A growl of approval from our wild trio? Well, It’s either that or a mating call… as we haven’t seen them this drunk in love in ages.

Appearance / Color 
Bright gold.
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Luscious sweet, almost caramel-like scent with a hint of fruity sensations and just a whiff of fresh grass.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The sweetness continues while a bit of spiciness kicks in. Some oranges and cereals are also present. The flavors keep on coming.
 
Finish
A warm, smooth long lasting finish that packs quite a lot of heat and complexity.

There is some debate about the origin date for Auchentoshan. the various dates include 1800,1817, and 1823. But most sources use the 1823 date, so we rely on that.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Auchentoshan uses three-part distillation process that is pretty rare in the world of Scotch Whiskies. Also, each still is a little different, so they have three stills -- an odd number of stills is rare too.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
