Auchentoshan 12 Bottling Note

A more recent release from the Auchentoshan distillery, replacing the previous staple 10 year old, this 12 year old bottling launched at the same time Auchentoshan had a dramatic rebrand back in 2011.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A cereal-sweet nose with notes of guava and mango, with a drizzle of honey.

Palate: Oaky and sweet palate, with barley sugar, a little passion fruit and vanilla custard too. Perhaps some rose petal jelly in there.

Finish: A lengthy, dry and oaky finish with barley sweetness and cocoa powder.

Auchentoshan 12 Year Old Reviews

Decent casual whisky

I was not expecting much from this one but the flavor is such a pleasant citrus sweet to a dry finish. Definitely a good casual whisky I’ll be returning to.

Drinks like water

I say this not because I hate on it. It is what it is. No character and bland. In a blind tasting vs Cardhu 12, it falls short in richness of smell, body of taste and lingering finish. Both were 'easy drinking', sure, but with the Cardhu, you can feel the character of the tipple. The Auchentoshan is just... bland. Probably good for the base whisky of Penicilin cocktail

Goes bad really fast.. finish the dram in 5 minutes, else you are drinking water.

To me this is slightly below average, the nose is abit harsh with some grassy note. The taste is rather bland, especially after about 30 minutes, it goes completely tasteless and I had to pour down the sink. You need to finish this whisky fast else it goes tasteless, even within the bottle. My last few dram of the bottle goes bad really fast. To me i would not buy Auchentoshan again..

Fabulous! A perennial favourite

I really like this! A few years ago, I received a sample among a wide range of other single malts. Auchentoshen 12 stood out a mile. Fruity, and spiced yet mild; no harsh notes of smoke or tannins. I’ve been coming back to this as my staple ever since!

Started drinking Scotch a few years ago. Tried many and have settled with Auchentoshan. Unique and exquisite. The only Scotch I will ever drink!

You need this is in your life

I am only starting on my whisky 'journey' and after a fair bit of research picked a few bottles to start off with. The first few were OK but still left me wondering if Whisky was really for me. Then I tried this little stunner. Absolutely delicious, smooth, lots of flavour (that you can actually taste) and a finish that doesn't burn your throat off. Highly recommend.

it is OK

nose: some oak and leaf with hints of honey
palate: sweet sherry, notes of smoke
finish: dry and oak
absolutely not a bad one for that price, but you can find better

Don't hate on easy drinking approachable

Toffee and malt. A hint of smoke, but not unapproachable. Just sweet enough and doesn't burn too much. Not sure why many on here hate on Auchentoshan 12, but this is easy drinking enough to serve to buddies over for a small get together and when they want something more interesting, you can break out other favourite bottles. Consider the Auchentoshan 12 the appetizer to the main course, and a good test to make sure you don't waste your Aberfeldy 21's or Lagavulin on someone who won't appreciate.

A great first round!

A good starter, nice and clean before bringing out my favorites. The dryness opens my taste buds and sets me up for a nice visit from my other Scottish friends.

A little water goes a long way to bring out the sweetness.
