Auchentoshan distillery is also known as “Glasgow’s Malt Whisky” because it’s located near Glasgow. Also known as “the breakfast whisky” because of its sweet and delicate nature. Auchentoshan 12YO replaced their 10 year old in 2008, and according to few sources across the internet, it’s been an improvement.
Unusually for a Scottish distillery, Auchentoshan’s whisky has been triple distilled, which makes it delicate. Aperitif style whisky like markjedi1, the self-proclaimed “Toshan Man” in Whisky Connosr would say.
Matured 80% refill and 20% first fill sherry wood, Auchentoshan 12 yrs is an okay dram. Even though it is light, it manages to offer nice flavors, without being too stingy.
