Founded by Irish refugees in 1825 on the outskirts of Glasgow, Auchentoshan is one of the last active distilleries in the Lowlands of Scotland. In common with other Lowland and Irish whiskies Auchentoshan malt whisky is distilled three times (as opposed to most Scottish malt whisky which is distilled twice). This triple-distillation has the effect of softening the flavour and body of the end product.
Golden honey in colour. Crème brulee a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan on the nose. Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. Gingery and slightly drying with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
Pair with some delectable smoked salmon.
