Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    The Classic is soft, rich and creamy with a pale gold appearance. 

    It has a rich vanilla and coconut smell with a hint of green apple and a tang of citrus zest. 

    To taste it has a sweet vanilla cream, fresh green apple skin and a little mint.  It has a wonderful fresh floral zesty finish.

    This was my first introduction to the Auchentoshan range of single malts. And I must say that I have enjoyed it so much it is now my Whisky of the moment. Smooth, subtle and creamy. With so many malt's to choose from this is a great starting point for the less knowledgeable Whisky drinkers amongst us.

    Very nice whisky. Not complex by any stretch, but delightful to drink. Very sweet, perfect introduction to whisky. Works well with cigars too. Don't put water in it though, it really doesn't need it.

    A pleasant & enjoyable whisky - good to share with friends.

    I bought this in England to take as gift to our Scottish hosts, (coals to Newcastle I know) last weekend. None of us had tried The Auchentoshan Classic before, but we all found it to be really delicate any very enjoyable.

    At this price its just so good, and so pleasant to drink. A great summer malt. Triple distiled.

  • Jamie H 9 March 2012

    Really enjoyed this over the Christmas period. Couldn't drink too much of it one go, though, before having to switch to something smoother. But very happy with it all the same.

    Just tried it at a free tasting at Noorman's Kill in Bushwick and it was the smoothest scotch i have ever had

    Lovely light whisky. Very easy to drink, only problem is applying the brakes. Very moreish. Good everyday dram especially at the price.

    Enjoying my first taste of the `classic` and finding it very nice indeed. The first sip definitely carried coconut and vanilla flavour, but there is a hint of lemon or citrus in the afterglow, thoroughly enjoyable lowland malt.

  • Rick Bastedo 6 February 2011

    Surprisingly this has flavors that remind me of the finer 1988 Toshan.However the 'freshness' of the Classic is really it's most noticeable characteristic. I'd certainly serve this to guests, but reserve the more mature Toshan for my very good friends.The cedar and fruity character of the 1988 is really not boldly present. There is a hint of it, the texture is lighter - the 88 is much more complex.At the price it is probably the best Scotch available.

    I purchased an older bottle ( the old look bottle ) and it was a very fruity scotch, it tasted of oranges or maybe mandarines .Was very smooth without too much heat, as far as lowlanders go this one was pretty good.

  • Steve 20 March 2010

    I usually have a bottle of this and its fun to sip straight out of the bottle or I'll put an ice cube that barely fits in my shot glass and drink it that way. Its got a wild, funky fruit flavor and it has some fire. I enjoy cooking with it. Great for marinades, or barbecued chicken.

  • Mark at 14 January 2010

    The Classic is ok, but in my opinion the least interesting of the Toshan's. I'd put my money on the exquisite 12 Year Old or the magnificent Three Wood.

  • D.Scott. 24 June 2009

    A nice lowland whisky. As james says light and lemony. Easy to drink and quite cheap to buy.

  • James Saxon 9 September 2008

    Drink #1: As pungent as the mash tun close beside! Sweet, light and lemony. Doesn't have the restraint and depth of the late 10 y-o but still very pleasant. Definitely this is a case study of how to home in on your target market.
