  1. BeatF scored this whisky 80 points Photo Moderator

    Very interesting drop with its own character: for this price you can not say anything!
    • Nose
      Wood fibers, clear furniture polish, sweet floral perfume, apple cores (almond flavor)
    • Taste
      Flower meadow, marzipan
    • Finish
      Licorice, clear wood, very discreet scrub, Molasse in a medium length finish

    Great entry-level whisky at a reasonable price.

  5. wembleytor scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    decent example of a lowland whisky, but the 10 year old provides better value.

    Not really into triple distilled whisky, I nevertheless approach this Auchentoshan 12 with fresh eyes.
    Did it help?

    • Nose
      Clear presence of oak with intense fruit aromas and subtle hints of spices, cinnamon and clove. In the background is the smell of warm creme brulee to recognize
    • Taste
      A soft texture with a sweet taste of caramel, honey, lime, lemon and hints of tangerine and lime
    • Finish
      A long, dry finish of ginger and nuts

    The most wonderful soft lowlander!

      Has that fresh air, open fields, fragrant smell to it with hints of oak, pear drops and new rubber.
    • Taste
      A nutty woody taste

      A dry medium finish
