Auchentoshan, The Bartender’s Malt (47% abv) is a single malt said to have been created by 12 bartenders from around the world.

The winning bartenders of The New Malt Order 2016 were invited to Glasgow, the home of Auchentoshan, to join the master blender for technical and laboratory sessions, sensual experiments and personality pairings with whisky casks, alongside a blending session of maturing Auchentoshan whiskies.

Tasting notes

Gold copper in colour with subtle grassy reflections, it offers dried apricots, milk, chocolate, honey and green tobacco leaf on the nose.

On the palate the single malt reveals delicate floral cherry blossom and buttery brioche, undercut by zesty notes of ginger, resulting in an edgy and expanding whisky with a long-lasting warmth.
