Auchentoshan 12 yo

Auchentoshan 12 yo

Official bottling
Single malt - Lowlands
40% ABV

Nose: Chocolate, orange peel, leather, raisins, coffee, hints of mint. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens slightly, slippery, mouth coating. 
Tasting:  Bitter sweet. Orange peel, lemon zest, dark chocolate, mint, hints of cola nuts. 
Finish: Short. Leather, chillies, dark chocolate, raisins. 


It's taken me a few years to try the 'new' Auchentoshan 12 yo, a replacement for the old 10 yo. It's more robust than what I normally associate with Auchentoshan, with strong vital notes of dark chocolate and coffee. There's only a light dusting of mint and lemon zest, some of the few hints that this is brother to the 10 yo.


I like this.
