    Not my fave for under 50$. Pretty subtle, smooth, not too hot. Sweeter taste to it and good bang for buck.

    Discovering the 12 year old on a trip to Edinburgh was a revelation! A whisky of eminent all-round drinkability. If I were trapped on a desert island with only one choice of whisky forever, then 'this be the one!'

    Hey Jeremy, way to give it 1 star and then talk about how great it is. Simpleton, glad its one of your favorites. I'm not sure if you know this or not, grey stars=bad not good.

    Smells like honey, tastes like honey. If you like unpasteurized honey then you will love this expression.

    I like sweet whiskeys that are so strong that give me a burning sensation in my throat. Auchentoshan is probaly not the most complicated Whiskey out there but Iove the smooth and sweet taste this whiskey has goes down very smoothly and the finish is Great one of my top favourite 12 year old whiskeys along with Craggenmore 12 and Glenfarclas 12.

    This is really nice stuff that I bought on a whim. I'm usually into heavily sherried, heavily peated or spicy malty coastal whiskies. A smooth triple distilled lowland is a big difference for me. On the nose there is vanilla and malty nuttiness. In the mouth it's very smooth. The nuttiness mixes with citrus notes. The finish is medium length and drying. There is the nuttiness again mixed with some ginger like spice from the oloroso sherry casks. Very easy drinking but very unique. Worlds better than a lot of more common "light" malts out there.

    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!

    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
