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.

    As others have mentioned before, this is very smooth. There is a very citrus scent to it, though it's not distinct exactly what kind of citrus. It tastes almost like a chamomile tea with a mild hint of lemon; a very pleasant way to end a night.

    This is a beautifully smooth everyday scotch. The Auchentoshan 12 has a wonderfully nuttiness to it that makes it just the perfect dram for the end of a work day or work week. This is my personal bottle, and I generally do not offer it when entertaining, although I have never had a complaint. It's definitely worth the price. Wonderful nose.

    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!
