Auchentoshan 12 Year Old is matured for 12 years in North American bourbon oak casks with an added hint of sherry-matured malt. 12 Year Old sets the style for the Auchentoshan brand, accessible but with the richness that comes from being matured for at least 12 years. It brings a hint of sherry which adds depth and roundness with a little bit of spice.
Enjoy neat, on the rocks or even with ginger ale and a wedge of orange.
Nose: Crème brulee, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan.
Taste: The palate is smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime.
Finish: Gingery and slightly drying with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
