Region: Lowland
District: West

This is one of the rare, triple-distilled single malts--Benrinnes, Springbank and Rosebank being the only others. Auchentoshan is a very light-bodied malt, but it retains great character and complexity. It is an excellent malt to introduce the novice to the world of single malts. The great bulk of Auchentoshan goes into the blends. An interesting aspect concerning this distillery is that, even though it is classified as a Lowland distillery due to the physical location of the plant, it gets its water from the Highlands' Kilpatrick Hills located just north of the Highlands boundary line.
