Whiskies (35)
Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Very expressive when young – as might be expected from a classic Lowlander.

Auchentoshan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 At 10 years, Auchentoshan makes an expressive, eloquent claim to being the classic Lowlander.

Auchentoshan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Lots of American Oak, and a super clean character. Nowt wrong, but not quite enough right.

Auchentoshan 11 Years Old 1999 Bordeaux Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00%
8 An interesting and invigorating autumn dram which needs water to cut the edges.

Auchentoshan 12 Years old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Good balance.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan 17 Years Old, Bordeaux Wine
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00%
8 The wine finish brings in sweetness and fruitiness but without masking the delicate grassiness and lightness of the Lowland style. A real cracker, perfect for a wake up call.

Auchentoshan 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Good nose,but the palate is a little too dry.

Auchentoshan 18 Years Old, Oloroso
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 An underrated malt. Check it out.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Auchentoshan 1966, 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%
8 A fine whisky, but does something as fresh and soft benefit from quite so much ageing?

Auchentoshan 1973, 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
8 The chestnut colour betrays the time this whisky has spent in oak. I have tasted much woodier whiskies - but not oakier Auchentoshans.

Auchentoshan 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.60%
8 A beautiful and delicate aperitif. Take your time with this - it deserves it.

Auchentoshan 1976 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.80%
7 Better on palate than the nose, but so fragile it shatters easily.

Auchentoshan 1976 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.60%
7 Old but still fresh. All very discreet. At its best neat.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan 1978, 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.80%
8 This seems to me the definitive light tasting (triple-distilled) Lowlander. In theory, such whiskies mature young, but this has aged beautifully.

Auchentoshan 1979 Oloroso 32 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.50%
8 Excellent.

Auchentoshan 1990 16 Years Old Bourbon Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.70%
7 Draff mixed with whipped cream? It's a Glaswegian cranachan.

Auchentoshan 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Gently restorative. Subtleties gradually become apparent. Not quite as complex as I remember it.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A fruity rumble in the hay. Oo arr missus.

Auchentoshan 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Nose is very promising,not sure about the palate.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Auchentoshan 36 Years Old, 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.90%
8 Elegance personified. A great mature complex dram.

Auchentoshan Classic
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Balanced clean and a good starting point.

Auchentoshan Heartwood
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Decent enough.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan Select
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Good balance. Fresh and exciting.

Auchentoshan Springwood
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Once in the mouth things start to happen but a little too restrained.

Auchentoshan Three Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Matching Auchentoshan with Pedro Ximinez is like putting Benny Lynch in the ring with Marciano. What do you get? It's unimaginable, but in whisky it works.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan Three Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Lowlands just as aperitifs? Pah! A well constructed malt with varied wood flavour, although the prevalence of sherry flavours makes it atypical of the region.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan Three Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A classic of its type.

Whisky Magazine - Best Buy - Winner

Auchentoshan Valinch 2011
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50%
8 Another excellent marker on the upward trajectory of Auchie.

Auchentoshan Valinch 2012
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 Pleasant in parts, but the oak hasn't been as friendly to this as you would have hoped.

Battlehill Auchentoshan
- Scotland - 43.00%
7 Very sulphury nose which knocks the scoreback. For me this needs more time in cask just to lose that element.

Berry's Own Selection Auchentoshan 1983
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Subtle aromas and flavours, but beautifully composed.

Dewar Rattray Auchentoshan 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00%
7 A well-balanced dram, as malty as fruity with a luscious toffee tempting character.

Dewar Rattray Auchentoshan 1990, 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
7 I would never have identified this as an Auchentoshan. Proves 'the Glasgow malt' has plenty of character, but this expression lacks subtlety.

James MacArthur Auchentoshan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.20%
7 I have not previously encountered such a full expression of Auchentoshan, but the style suits the whisky.

Old Malt Cask Auchentoshan 1978
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Promising nose. Palate hard to tame, disappointing.
