Auchentoshan (2005)
The distillery closest to the heart of Glasgow rests at the foot of the Old Kilpatrick Hills, overlooking the river Clyde.

The subtle aroma and flavour of the spirit is achieved by the unique triple distillation process, whereby the spirit is distilled not twice, as elsewhere in Scotland, but instead, three times resulting in a malt whisky with an extremely refined character.
