A Lowland single malt whisky from the Auchentoshan distillery, no age statement is given and one assumes it is a younger malt though certainly an enjoyable one. ‘Classic’ was launched in 2008 to replace the old staple ‘Select’.
Nose: Fairly sweet, toasty Bourbon notes and creamy vanilla intertwined with lush, ripe cooked fruit. Perhaps coconut.
Palate: Fruity with typical Auchentoshan refinement. White peach and crème anglaise.
Finish: Clean, a floral freshness, a little more zest with white peach and apple.
