Characteristics of Auchentoshan 12 years

The Auchentoshan 12 Year Old is triple distilled then matured for over twelve years. This Lowland Single Malt Whisky has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste. 
The production of Auchentoshan distinguishes itself for the insistence on time-old methods, such as wooden washbacks and triple distillation for every single drop. Auchentoshan's clean, complex character starts with malted optic barley. Only gently kilned, completely unpeated barley lets the Auchentoshan taste shine through. 
The barley is then grinded to suit the lauter tun. It's vital to have evenly milled starch grits - this maximises the amount of starch that converts into sugars during mashing. All this effort means a fresh-tasting, clear wort from the lauter tun. The milled, malted barley - and pure water - is then fed into the lauter tun, first of all at 63.5°C. The heat helps turn the starches into sugar.

After two fillings the liquid is ready for fermentation - the third filling is used as the first water in the next mash. Distillation takes the fermented liquid from around 8% ABV (alcohol by volume) up to 81%. No other Scottish distillery insists on this for every drop - double distillation usually reaches just 70% ABV. The oak casks have a huge influence on flavour - so Auchenstoshan spend a lot of time and money selecting them. They use casks that held bourbon, sherry or fine wines - each lending its own unique flavour.

Tasting notes Auchentoshan 12 years

Sight Golden honey. Nose Crème brulee, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan. Taste Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
