Auchentoshan 12 Year
Auchentoshan is a lowland distillery. The fact of the matter is that lowland scotches just don’t get the love they deserve. Smooth and dry, this one is very enjoyable if you are looking for something easy to drink. Triple distillation makes this more like Irish whisky in some respects; the more times a liquor is distilled, the smoother it becomes. Unfortunately, that smoothness is at the sacrifice of flavor. I prefer very spicy to smooth, so this is not my #1, but it is my go-to recommendation for people who are not big fans of whisky in general.
