This Scottish Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky from the lowlands distillery near Glasgow was added to the range at the end of 2013. The Auchentoshan distillery is located in the west of Scotland on the foot of the Kilpatrick Hills, close to the northern bank of the Clyde River. The city based distillery was established in 1800 and was licensed as the Duntocher distillery in 1823 but was renamed in the 1830’s. The distillery is currently owned by Beam Suntory Inc. and is known to have walked away with several international awards.
Quite unusual for Scottish Whiskey, the Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky is triple distilled and stored in first-fill Bourbon casks made from white American oak. As a result the bright gold colored Single Malt takes a particularly light and gentle character. The triple distillation is a special feature because the 3rd process in the intermediate still aids in achieving an impressive alcohol content of 80 - 82%. This and the use of unpeated malt allows for an extra soft and delicate sweet flavor. According to studies a higher alcohol content has no influence on the ripening process of Whisky so the Single Malt is diluted on filling to 63.5%. The final alcohol content of Auchentoshan American Oak Whisky is 40%. The process is costly and takes time, but every drop is worth the investment.
Due to its complex distillation and storage in American white Oak Bourbon barrels, the Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky is particularly soft and refreshingly smooth, and is a perfect Whisky for beginners. On the palate, it is very mild and has a fresh fruity character. However, the Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky has a meaningful taste with a strong hint of vanilla combined with wonderful notes of caramel, coconut, peach and lingering grapefruit. The departure surprises Whisky lovers with a spicy, fresh sound.
There is unfortunately no information available about the storage time of Auchentoshan American Oak and as with others Auchentoshans products, the Whisky has a no age statement. The Auchentoshan team recommend several ways to enjoy the versatile Whisky. Try it neat, on the rocks, in classic cocktails and in modern cocktail creations.
Conclusion of the Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky:
The easy-to-drink Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky is the ideal Whisky for beginners as well as the perfect Whisky for connoisseurs who like a little softer Single Malt. In conclusion, the Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Whisky has a balanced overall taste of candied sweetness, a certain gentleness and a lovely spice on the finish.
