Launched in 2011 as a replacement to the Auchentoshan 10yo when the core range was revamped. The 12yo is triple-distilled, as is all Auchentoshan spirit, and matured in a combination of Oloroso sherry and American bourbon casks. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Crème brulee, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness (toasted almonds) and green leafiness.
Palate: Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. Mandarins, toffee and honeysuckle.
Finish: Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
