Customer Rating

This Auchentoshan 12 yrs expression replaced the old 10 year-old a few years ago in 2008, when the range was totally revamped, and has been hailed as a big improvement on the occasionally lacklustre 10yo.

Auchentoshan 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    The 12 year old is smooth, fresh and nutty with a golden honey appearance. 

    It has a Crème Brulee smell with a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan. 

    To taste the palate is smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime.  To finish, it is a gingery and slightly drying with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.

    easy to drink anytime. The twelve year old is a daily drinking scotch. Very smooth with sutle flavours a real pleasure

    I purchased a bottle to celebrate my first (albeit small) bonus. It has an excellent smooth, sweet, woodsy taste. It doesn''t seem complicated to the palate and that is perhaps what I enjoy most.

    Smooth, sweet and nuttiness like producer promised. Unfortunately, very thin on palate and not that much complexity. There is simply too much 12 yo, 40 -% and caramel colored single malts on the market and this is only a mediocre malt in that category. I would really like to see this 46 %, unchillfiltered and no color added. Come on Achentoshan, there is only two Lowland distillery left. Now is the time to make your move!

    Lovely stuff, as a novice whisky drinker I found it so drinkable. Lovely and smooth.

    I got a good deal on a bottle of 21yr online and enjoyed it so much I thought I would try the 12yr. It has the same distinctive character, perhaps it comes from the triple distillation process? This is an exceptionally smooth whisky, not the most complex around but just so easy to drink and thoroughly enjoyable

    Smooth with a lot of woody tones coming through. Well worth the money.

    Value for money on this one is superb; hard to beat for that kind of money.

    Excellent single malt. Very fruity and has a hint of caramel upon opening of the bottle. Highly recommended!!!

    This whisky is smooth, slightly sweet with hints of spice and vanilla. It has a wonderful mouth-coating texture. If you like this, I think you would also enjoy a Green Spot or Redbreast 15.
