Auchentoshan Three Wood Lowland Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Lowland Whisky
No other Scottish distillery insists on triple distilling every single drop - this gives the Lowland Single Malt whisky a complex, gentle flavour. Auchentoshan has been crafted on the banks of the River Clyde since 1823, in the shadow of the Old Kilpatrick hills between Glasgow and Loch Lomond.
Auchentoshan Three Wood is triple distilled and matured in American Bourbon Oak. It is finished in Spanish Olorosso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. The result - a Lowland single malt rich with dark fruits, thick butterscotch, roasted hazelnuts and the signature smooth, delicate Auchentoshan taste.
Nose: Cooked fruit, sherry, toffee, a rum-like quality and notes of Bas Armagnac distilled circa 1940.
Palate: Rich. Liqueur cherries in dark chocolate, more sherried fruit, ripe dark forest fruits, like a Black Forest Gateaux.
Finish: Superb, led by thick dark treacle and toffee notes and chewy wooded notes, balanced with a green fruit edge.
