Triple distillation gives this Lowland whisky a refined, soft and creamy character. If you believe that Auchentoshan 12 is only suitable for beginners, you are missing an awful lot! The nose is light and sweet with a pleasant crème brûlée note. Gentle citrus fruits harmonize with raisins, honey and herbal vanilla. Tastewise, the sherry cask influence certainly adds to the complexity of this Single Malt. It's sweet, mildly fruity, and there is a hint of hazelnuts. The finish is clean, moderate and semidry. An intriguing whisky that is distinctly different from the others!
