Auchentoshan Three Wood
Auchentoshan // Lowlands, Scotland
Auchentoshan is one of the few remaining Lowland distilleries in existence. Located just outside of Glasgow, they are also the only ones in Scotland still triple distilling their product, formerly a common occurrence for the Lowland area. The Triple Wood expression was first released in 2002 and is aged in ex Bourbon casks before being aged in Oloroso and then Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-Bourbon, ex-Oloroso Sherry, ex-Pedro Ximenez Sherry
"Pedro Ximenez cask aging tends to lend a sticky sweet note to whisky and this is no exception. The nose is alluring with intense aromas of dark caramel, baking spice and vanilla. The tasting continues to entice with blackberries, brown sugar, and tobacco. "
