Auchentoshan – 1997 – 15 ans – 46%

Hunter Laing – Douglas of Drumlanrig
Distilled  : 12/1997 – Bottled : 05/2013 – Cask Number : 9812  – Alcool : 46%

Auchentoshan is currently the only Scotch single malt to be distilled three times (a legacy of the 19th century) in stills with conical shape (classic pot still). There is therefore an intermediate still between the wash still and spirit still.
Another remarkable fact, the middle cut is raised to 82.5%, or ten degrees higher than that of other Scottish distilleries. This gives a single malt that matures quickly, marked by exuberant floral aromas (violets, lavender) directly related to the fermentation (yeast). Light and lemony character, Auchentoshan is a single malt drink with a strong personality.

Auchentoshan distillery
Au nord-ouest de Glasgow, dans les Lowlands, mais non loin de la limite de séparation avec les Highlands, le bâtiment tout blanc de la distillerie Auchentoshan se trouve au milieu entre les Killpatrick Hills et le fleuve Clyde.
Auchentoshan est le seul single malt écossais à être distillé trois fois (un héritage du 19e siècle) dans des alambics de forme conique (classic pot still). Il y a donc un alambic intermédiaire et unique en son genre entre le wash still et le spirit still.
Si vous aimez le single malt sans rechercher l’intensité, Auchentoshan vous offre l’idéal : la subtilité. Stan Getz plutôt que Sonny Rollins ; Vivaldi et non Beethoven. Le single malt d’Auchentoshan est marqué par de très fortes notes florales dont l’origine est directement liée à l’usage de levures lors de la fermentation de l’orge.

The Lowlands
Lowlands directly touch England to the south and end on the Highland Line to the north. This virtual line, drawn once by the British Parliament, stretches from Greenock to Dundee.
The area includes the central belt of Scotland South (a line from Forth to Loch Lomond). In the region, there always have been only malt distilleries, especially because at the time of the illegal distillation, there was almost no possibility of distilling whiskey in secret in this rather flat country.
