Auchentoshan American Oak is matured in first fill American oak casks. These casks originally held bourbon before being trusted to mature Auchentoshan. After maturation, the casks are carefully married to create the crisp citrus notes and the smoothness that is Auchentoshan American Oak. Bright gold in colour with a bourbon vanilla nose with coconut and layers of zesty citrus fruit. Refreshingly smooth yet lively with vanilla cream, coconut and white peach. A crisp finish, with sugared grapefruit and hints of spice.
Background: In the Gaelic tongue, Auchentoshan means 'the corner of the field': a clear illustration of the rolling Lowland backdrop of the distillery, ideally situated between the Kilpatrick hills, Loch Lomond and the modern cosmopolitan city of Glasgow. At Auchentoshan, unlike any other distillery in Scotland, the spirit is triple distilled to create a single malt whisky that is both pure and smooth - renowned for its soft, delicate character.
