Auchentoshan - 18 Y

Auchentoshan - 18 Y

Lowlands

A 3 times distilled whisky from the Lowlands, near Glasgow. The Auchentoshan distillery was opened in 1825 by Irish refugees, which explains the light character of the whisky. Because Auchentoshan distils 3 times, the spirit has a much higher alcohol content than usual; 81%. By triple distillation, the whisky is also purified. This Auchentoshan has been fully matured on bourbon barrels for 18 years and has therefore acquired a beautiful, deep complexity.
