Tasting Notes

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. With chewy wooded notes, balanced with a green fruit edge.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Auchentoshan Three Wood

Quote 1  “An excellent whisky, especially at the price point. And both smooth, very drinkable, also nicely complex. For it’s price point as good as you will likely find. ”

Quote 2 “A little sweet without being cloying; kind of oaky without tasting charred; a trace of smoke without oily iodine. The best single-malt at its price point by far. I nearly overlooked it because it doesn’t have an “Age Statement”, besides, younger vintages are usually a little harsh. But make no mistake, this is the finest NAS Scotch I’ve ever tasted. Will go for more. ”

Quote 3 “An unusual Scotch which might not be for everyone. But drinks like a smooth Irish whiskey yet made with some smokiness. Sweet, approachable, and a good all-around tasty scotch. The second-hand sherry casks are the key, much like Irish whiskeys (e.g. Bushmills 16 / 21). Oloroso casks in particular give an amazing richness of flavor. Some purists might call this “heresy” but I say it’s very much worth a try! ”
