Auchentoshan Classic 700ml
Auchentoshan Distillery (pronounced Aw-khen-tosh-an) is a single malt whisky distillery in the west of Scotland. The name Auchentoshan is gaelic and translates as "The corner of the field," the distillery is also known as "Glasgow's Malt Whisky" due to its close proximity to Glasgow and "the breakfast whisky" due to its sweet and delicate nature.
Unusually for a Scottish distillery, Auchentoshan practices triple distillation. Generally the final stage of Scotch whisky production involves distilling the fermented mash in two copper stills. In Auchentoshan, a third still known as the "Intermediate Still" helps to gives a spirit strength of 81% ABV (162 proof). This triple distillation, in addition to an unpeated malt, gives Auchentoshan a more delicate and sweet flavour than many Scotch Whiskies. Maturation is mainly in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-sherry butts though some Auchentoshans will mature in French wine casks.
Initially, intensely sweet on the nose, with peaches and Madeira. Vanilla and coconut notes from the Bourbon casks used in maturation then begin to make their presence felt. The addition of water brings out more overt vanilla. Smooth and fruity on the palate, with vanilla ice cream. Classic Lowland elegance. The finish is fresh and floral, with a lingering note of ripe peaches
