Auchentoshan Classic

A Lowland single malt whisky from the Auchentoshan distillery, no age statement is given and one assumes it is a younger malt though certainly an enjoyable one. 'Classic' was launched in 2008 to replace the old staple 'Select'.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Fairly sweet, toasty Bourbon notes and creamy vanilla intertwined with lush, ripe cooked fruit. Perhaps coconut.

Palate Fruity with typical Auchentoshan refinement. White peach and crème anglaise.

Finish Clean, a floral freshness, a little more zest with white peach and apple.

Beautifully balanced light whisky
Don't be put put off by some of the comments here. This is a lovely whisky and a real shame it's no longer made. If you can find a bottle and enjoy your vanilla lowland tastes then snap it up. Best sipped neat.

I'm a Highland Park fan. The 18 if I can get it and if not the 12 yr. old . I got a bottle of Aunchentoshan Classic by mistake and it was indeed a mistake. On the bright side I now have a bottle of scotch to give people I don't really want drinking my good stuff.

Horrid Stuff
This is simply terrible whisky and the American Oak is only a little better. There are only a few malts which are genuinely bad and this, along with basic Jura and Speyburn, is one of them. These are cheap but there are plenty of good whisky's often on offer that are vastly superior like Glenlivet, Ardmore, Aberlour etc.

Perfectly nice whisky
This is the entry level Auchentoshan I guess, with no age startement, and well priced. But it's not cheap in any way, and exhibits the sort of class you might expect from bottles twice as expensive. Clean, vanilla hints, fruity taste, but subtle. Light sipping at it's best. Great distillery to visit too.

Bloody awful.
Smells nice. Tastes like grain. Bad grain. Awful aftertaste and bad hangover the next day. £22? Not worth it. 12 year olds are only 3-5 quid more and will offer consistency at least. This has nothing except a nose - just like most blends.

Unfairly dismissed
Its lowland, so its light and sweet and suitable for beginners. LOL. Just kidding.
This isn't as bad as people are making out. Its definitely light and sweet.
Why buy this for £20 and not a bourbon or some Grants mcWhisky? Two reasons. 1. This is a single malt. 2. Its tripple distilled so smooth and has real flavour.
This is alright with an ice cube. They have eased off on the caramel and chill filtration too as Ralphy predicted. Which is very evident. Great value, easy dram for the price.

for a young whisky , 6 yo to my taste , it has to be given a chance . yes it is light , no it is not as complex as a more aged product , but given a little time in the glass ( glencairn with lid ) it does develope into a nice wee dram . don't let the comments below put you off , keep an open mind & experience it for what it is & it can be enjoyed.
