Three Wood has been one of the Auchentoshan’s greatest successes. Launched in 2002 it has been part of the distillery core range for more than a decade.
The whisky does not carry age statement and besides the routine Auchentoshan’s triple distillation it underwent “triple maturation” as well. During aging process the spirit was transferred from ex-bourbon to ex-Oloroso sherry casks, only to end up in ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, which contribute to its richness and sweet fruitiness.
Nose: rich and fruity, dried apricots and dates, orange zest, hazelnuts and marshmallows.
Palate: basket full of fruits, chocolate dip hazelnuts, toffee, cinnamon, hints of lemon and oak.
Finish: long and creamy, with raisins and sherried oak.
