If you have already heard of Auchentoshan, a distillery in the Scottish Lowlands, you'll know they make delicate, elegant, easy-going whiskies. This well-deserved reputation is down to their triple distilled malt whiskies — an uncommon practice in Scotland where whiskies are usually distilled just twice. The triple-distillation process produces whiskies with a softer flavour and body. However, this description does definitely not suit their Auchentoshan Three Wood whisky. This award-winning whisky has matured in three different kinds of barrels: it spends at least ten years in Bourbon casks, then a year in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, before finishing with another year in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.
The final result: a warm whisky with character and notes of sherry. Aromas of cooked fruit, sherry and toffee stand out alongside notes of Bas Armagnac. Rich on the palate, with hints of cherry liqueur, dark chocolate, wild forest fruits, and toffee, balanced out with a touch of green fruits. A long, dry and creamy finish. A rich and distinct experience.
