    User Reviews of the Auchentoshan 12 Year Old


    That was my thought when I opened the bottle and poured. When I read the product description of mandarin, toffee and honeysuckle it seemed right. Very smooth and full bodied - I sipped it with some dark chocolate and it was heaven. Wonderful value

    Not Bad at All

    I have some unique tasting nuances and finances prohibit me from going well beyond this price point, but I received this bottle as a Christmas gift and I have to say that fruitiness of the dram and the sweet notes are well within my liking threshold. Simply stated, I am a humble ex-police officer and paramedic and the simple things in life enthrall me now and this whisky is certainly one I would not necessarily recommend to a whisky aficionado, but for me, very good choice.

    excellent value for price point

    not as complex or refined as some of the more expensive single malt alternatives, but provides a smooth, balanced whiskey with notes or citrus, and caramel. Unique value proposition at the price point.

    Very close to a blend

    If you enjoy the blends - Chivas and JW and looking to enter into the good side (single malts), start with this. My father has yet to like one Single Malt. But I poured him a dram of this a couple of months ago, and told him it was a new blend I found at the liquor store, and he actually liked it. After his second one, I told him it was a single. My cousin tried it too and thought I was giving him a taste of a very expensive scotch. Observations: A bit cognac-like, slightly sweet in the front - Brian does a good job expressing it below. very approachable. I recommend keeping a bottle on the shelf. Don't drink with water or ice, it gets rough. I like it from my cold fridge.

    Bloody awful. Save this one for the lassies you wish to impress. Wouldn't gie this tae a Campbell if he first footed to me but n ben. 1 Star cause its no a blend.

    Delightful smoky flavour

    Ignore poor reviews. This is the one.

    14th February 2014


    Fruity, green apple nose. Very lovely. Good taste too. Some heat with some spice. A good dram that most overlook. Shame that these lowland whiskies are often avoided. This one is delightful.

    Very impressive entrance. Tasting analytics will like the way it announces itself. The finsh was the longest by far of any scotch I've tasted, but unfortunately, highly astringent. Yes most won't mind the finish.

    I buy a nice bottle of single malt at Christmas for my friends coming into town each year. I try to sample our way around all the regions of Scotland. I'm sorry to say this years selection, Auchentoshan, was the first time we've been disappointed. We all agreed it's a smooth scotch, but my enjoyment of single malt is the complexity with distinct beginnings, middles and long finishes. In my tasting, this scotch delivers a pleasing butterscotch flavor and then promptly quits.

    At this price point (the same as the others I buy) I expected more.

    6th January 2014

    Rediscovered my love of whiskey with this one

    Love the nose, vanilla, caramel and some citrus
    The finish is smooth, almost but not quite sweet with no peat and a just a little smoke tiny bit of bite at the end.

    My new favorite whiskey, prefer it neat, I found ice robbed some of the flavors from this one. This is a very mild single malt.

    Top class

    if it was possible to drink an angel she would taste like this !

    Triple distillation sets apart this 12 year

    It's my favorite 12 year scotch; eminently drinkable in large quantities, which makes it dangerous to have around. The nose to me is smooth citrus, palate is light butterscotch, and the finish is dulcet while still coming through with a comfortable burn, which is important in a scotch of this kind.

    8th December 2013

    Fragrant, Palate lets down somewhat

    Wonderful aroma of coconut, vanilla, orange. Palate doesn't match: light, oak and sour. But lots of breathing turns this to honey. Good, if average.

    Chill-filtered? Brown dye? 40%?

    I'll give this a miss for the moment. x

    George - Auchentoshan 12

    Like many Lowlanders, has a delicate and refined feel; a great one for those who like a less pungent malt or are just beginning to engage their curiosity. Representative of the house and indeed area style. Actually rather good as an aperitif. Nose: Light and bright, with a cereal sweetness and hints of pineapple and passion-fruit.Palate: Certainly continues the cereal sweetness - prevalent barley tones. Developing dryness and a woody vanilla. Finish: Of surprising length. Simple, dry and malty sweet.

    18th April 2013

    A nice lowland dram

    The nose has a ton of fruit. It's almost hard to smell anything else. I get a bit of carmel and toffee aswell, but who can tell over the citrus! The taste is exactly like the nose indicates. Lots of fruit. Not oily and no grit in the mouth, very clean. Finishes with a nicer burn than expected, and grows a bit more complex at the very end. This scotch is just what I expected from a 12 year lowland. This won't bowl you over if you like peat, and it's not terribly strong. It is smooth, the triple distillation is easily noticed, and it is clean. This is fun dram. Not just for beginner, it's merits can appreciated by experienced palates as well.

    beautiful experience

    OK as an american who has tasted just a few scotchs and quite a few bourbons I can say that since this is my first true single malt I was quite taken with Auchentoshan 12 year old. Nice honey color... beyond that since im no whiskey taster All I can say is that after today no more hillbilly swill for me. I have drank Chivas and Crown Royal and if you want a single malt that covers all the basics of taste and smell and color youve picked a great on in the Achentoshan 12 year old I found my thrill CHEERS

    19th January 2013

    Light and Simple

    While not the most complex single malt it is still a quality drink. Light and sweet with a long finish; it maintains a Scottish character without an intense smoke. A good place to start if you're new to scotch. I personally feel that the alcohol comes out a little too strong and contrasts with it's flavors but others have said they find it very smooth.

    29th December 2012


    As good as it gets. Drank 6 bottles (with others) at a Scottish wake. We had the 27 year old and that is the 10 rating I have given it.
    The only other I like better is from the Isle of Islay peat single malt. Then again they are different.

    24th December 2012

    Delivers as advertised

    I'm not a jaded vet. I prefer Glenmorangie 10, Macallan 10 & 12. This is certainly in that wheelhouse. Very nice sip to my senses.

    22nd December 2012

    easy first malt

    If youre new to the world of single malts you will likely be very happy with this one. Not too complex and very easy on the pallet. Lacks the bite and aftertaste of many others but very enjoyable all the same.

    As a highlander in exile this is one of my favourites

    Pretty dull this one. But then not a fan of light and citrusy whisky.

    22nd April 2012

    Lovely flavour

    A nice smooth whisky.

    22nd December 2011

    Not my favourite!

    This one gives not much to write home about!

    10th September 2011

    Must be nuts!

    The nose is very sweet with a load of caramel, a whiff of nuts and a spoonful of honey. I like it. A lot!

    The taste is sweet, but not overly so. Just a tad of lemon, but again loads of caramel and honey.

    Mark Dermul - A Toshan Man!

    The finish is medium lenght, sweet and dry.

    I like it a lot!

    14th July 2011

    good single malt

    a nice dram with a great nose,smooth and although not the most complex it is all the better considering the price, great for those just getting into single malts.

    Mr A R Earl

    I have enjoyed Auchentoshan's 12 year old single malt for a couple of years.
    It is a refined sipping Whiskey to be savoured. Most enjoyed neat or with ice. What a decent well priced whiskey should taste like.
    Having a nip or two now. Cheers

    14th January 2011

    excellent single malt

    I found Auchentoschan only recently but now I hardly buy anything else. It is so smooth that you'd imagine mostly women would target the bottle to find the label. But all my guests have been doing that. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
