Founded in 1823, Auchentoshan are the only distillery in Scotland to have a third still. This is for the triple distillation of every drop. This has to be taken in context as they are not the only Scottish distillery to triple distill.
Distillation takes the fermented liquid at Auchentoshan from around 8% ABV (alcohol by volume) up to 81%. Double distillation usually reaches just 70% ABV.
Auchentoshan new spirit is the highest distillate of any single malt distillery in Scotland. This is claimed to make it cleaner and crisp in the mouth.
Nose. Sweet stewed plums and Orange peel
Palate. Mild spices, sweetness, orange peel, citrus and oak. It is gentle on the tongue.
Finish medium sweet finish with a fruity tang lingering on the tip of the tongue
I would recommend this as a good bottle to try for any Whisky fan looking to broaden their horizons. We tried this at Stroud Whisky Club and it went down well and proved very popular. Not world beating but for the money it delivers good value
