The 12 year old is smooth, fresh and nutty with a golden honey appearance.
It has a Crème Brulee smell with a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan.
To taste the palate is smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. To finish, it is a gingery and slightly drying with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
A more recent release from the Auchentoshan distillery, replacing the previous staple 10 year old, this 12 year old bottling exhibits the new, slightly Imperial aesthetics Auchentoshan have rebranded themselves with.
