Auchentoshan scotch from the Lowlands is not a heavy peaty scotch. So if your into the Islay peaty types this one will not please you. This is a single malt scotch that is triple distilled and has a honey color. You will notice a toffee like scent with a little almond also. So you know this will not be peaty. No iodine smell here. There is a distinct citrus taste at first and then you will notice an after taste with a kind of dry nutty flavor. Not one of my favorites. I would prefer one of the more peaty scotches over this, although the peaty ones are not necessarily my favorites either. Having said that, I love almost all scotch so my criticism does not mean I would not drink this.

Lowland Single Malts are single malt whiskies distilled in the lowlands of Scotland. The region, once having a number of whisky producers, now only has three operating distilleries: Glenkinchie, near Edinburgh; Auchentoshan, near Clydebank; and Bladnoch in Galloway. At least six other lowland single malts are still available, but are no longer distilled, Rosebank, Kinclaith, St. Magdalene, Ladyburn, Inverleven and Littlemill.
Traditionally Lowland Single Malts are triple distilled (though this has not been true of all of them), often giving them a lighter taste.Source Wikipedia
