Auchentoshan 12 Bottling Note

Lowland distillery Auchentoshan's flagship single malt whisky, famously triple-distilled which is unusual for a Scotch. This contributes to its signature smooth character, however. It's been matured in both American oak and sherry casks.

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

Could be much better

It's actually ok quality sherry casks they've used, but it's so flushed out, way too much water that it dilutes the taste and quality. If only they would keep it non chill filtered, 46% or more, natural colour, the brand would take off. Auchentoshan has so much potential, yet I feel their mainstream expressions and this one in particular misses the wow factor to favour repeat purchases. That being said, it's a nice whisky, thick sherry influence upfront with the bourbon spiciness coming in the back, nice honey and tangerine notes but way too soft at 40%.

A whisky that fails at everything...

Tasting notes on the label is spot on. It starts off with very light notes of mandarin, toffee, honeysuckle and a little bit of wood ash and tannins, but it is quite thin and a bit boring like other reviews have stated but it's ok. But what really turned this whisky around for me later on is how the oxidation of it in the bottle opened up rather weird and off putting notes witch i could only describe as (and i'm not kidding when i say this is what i get) rotten onions and cabbages on both the smell and taste that just completely dominates the whole thing. Quite possibly the worst single malt I'VE tried yet and only gets 1 star for drinkability. Thank god i bought a miniature bottle instead cause i ended up mixing the rest

The Exeter City of Whisky

This is not amazing. It won’t feature on anyone’s must have lists. No one with hope Santa brings them a bottle. But, it’s not too bad. If you think of the Three Wood to be the Everton of the whisky world, this is Exeter City. Not amazing but can occasionally cause an FA cup upset. The American Oak by the way is Maidstone United. Total gash.

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.
