Auchentoshan are one of the most well known when it comes to Lowland Whisky but falls off the Scotch radar as a whole. However the entry level American Oak edition does pop up in the occasional supermarket. In 2019 Auchentoshan unveiled a rebrand that is clearly more catered to the younger and bar market, which is not a bad thing by any means.
It has a lovely colour and their website really goes into depth about how the barrels give the Whisky its colour. This all sounds very promising only to have “farven justeret med karamel” on the back of the bottle. Meaning unfortunately this has been colour adjusted with caramel.
