A distillery that hasn’t been through hardship is not a distillery.
The renowned Auchentoshan (pronouced Ock-En-Tosh-En) Distillery in the Scottish Lowlands established in 1823, remains as one of six distilleries in the area after a night of terror as a German airstrike nearly destroyed its entire structure.
Rising from the ashes, Auchentoshan is now a favourite among single-malt whisky lovers. Before it was available in Malaysia, many local travellers brought Auchentoshan back to our shores as word of its smooth taste and versatility travelled faster than its marketing.
Here are single malts that have several distinguishable levels of experience based on its line, yet each age – whether it’s a 12-Year or 21-Year – can be appreciate in cocktails and as a standalone drink.
Call it turning lemons into lemonades (the distillery uses a bomb crater as their distillery pond), but the truth is less legend and more fact.
Auchentoshan is the only Scottish distillery that triple distills every bottle they produce – giving the love that all whisky deserves. Because of this, there is none of the air that other brands have when distinguishing their products by age.
If you haven’t been introduced to Auchentoshan, here’s where to start based on what your reaction might be thus far…

“I’m already an Auchentoshan fan, what makes their top tier product a premium whisky?”
There is no question you NEED to taste AUCHENTOSHAN 21-YEAR-OLD now!
Aged for over 21 years in American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks, this whisky is ripe with gooseberries, sweet creamy vanilla, a hint of oak, warm honey and the signature smooth, delicate taste you would expect from Auchentoshan.
As the single malt matures in the quality bourbon and sherry barrels, a new and complex colour and flavour profile is created over time. From its looks, everything about the 21-Year-Old checks out as premium, but more than that, it weighs all the way down to the finish you get after a sip.
Its long lasting finish demonstrates a real depth of character formed after more than 21 years, that is testimony to an Auchentoshan whisky that can stand beside premium releases from other brands (and at a lower price to boot!).
