Notes

Auchentoshan means "corner of the field" in Gaelic. Auchentoshan was founded in 1823 located next to the Clyde River. According to Marc Hoffmann’s book “Whiskey,” it was “rebuilt in 1875 but then severely bombed the Germans in World War II with the sad sight of burning whiskey flowing into the Clyde River. It went dark but then was reconstructed in 1948, modernized in 1974, and then purchased by the Morrison Group in 1984 and 10 years later to become a subsidiary of Suntory (the current owners). They are proud of the Lowlands tradition of “triple distillation,” by which they take the distillate up to a very high 162 proof, which creates the very soft, gentle whiskey that they prize. The label is pronounced, “AWK-en-TOSH-en.”

The Auchentoshan 16yr scotch was limited to a run of 4,800 bottles (see Royal Mile Whiskies).
