Triple distillation in the Lowlands is thought to have originated by Irish settlers to the region during the potato famine in the mid 19th century. Auchentoshan is the only distillery in Scotland that continues this tradition. If you are ever in and around the Glasgow area, it would do you well to tour the distillery as their visitor center is top notch. You would also be wise to sample their 18 Year old bottling which is aged in American oak barrels and is 86 proof.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is reminiscent of apple cider with cinnamon and ginger in particular standing out. Both chocolate and vanilla come through on further inspection along with mint and pineapple. The body is average and the wood spices are gentle on your palate. "
