Reviews of purchase Auchentoshan 12 Years Old, gift box, 700 ml
Whiskey light golden color.
The taste of whiskey soft, rounded, with notes of mandarin and lime, with a little dryish finish with hints of ginger and nuts.
The bouquet of whiskey felt incredibly pleasant notes creme brulee, citrus fruits, nuts and green leaves.
Whiskey beautiful on its own, as a digestif.
Auchentoshan Whisky 12 Years Old created by triple distillation and held for 12 years, is a classic whiskey Scotch Plains (Lowlands) - light and elegant, perfect as an aperitif.
Ochentoshen distillery founded probably in 1800, but under the name of "Auchintoshan" she earned in 1834. Translated from the Gaelic meaning "corner of the field." The plant itself is located in the lowlands north of Glasgow, and the source of water consumed - Cochna Loch - located in the mountains. A feature of the plant is the use of triple-distilled, unlike conventional double. Some sources claim that Auchentoshan began its history thanks to the Irish immigrants who came here, who brought with them and the Irish custom of triple distillation. Damaged during the Second World War, the factory was purchased, restored and converted Eddie Cairns in 1969. At the same time, in accordance with the new rules of spelling, the plant was renamed and became known as "Auchentoshan". In 1984 the factory was bought by "Morrison Bowmore", which ten years later became a subsidiary of the Japanese corporation "Suntory". "Suntory", which already owned factories on the island of Islay Bowmore and Glen Garioch Highland, quickly withdrew "Ochentoshen" winners in creating a brand with a great reputation. The plant currently produces 1.65 million liters of alcohol per year.
