Auchentoshan distillery is located in Clydebank, in the heart of the Lowlands whisky region. Auchentoshan employ a triple distillation method, an unusual process which sees the spirit enter the cask at a staggering 82% Alcohol by volume. After maturation and bottling, the whiskies are typically light, fruity and pristinely balanced. In simple terms, they're dangerously drinkable and offer the devoted whisky drinker a 'go to' malt for warmer weather and the gift buyer an ideal choice when unsure about someone's whisky preferences.

Auchentoshan Three Wood is matured initially in bourbon casks before being finished in Oloroso or Pedro Ximenez casks for an extra layer of rich, sweet fruitiness.

Tasting note: Bright burnished copper appearance. Initial nosing reveals aromas of spicy malt and mild vanilla. There are hints of dried fruits too. Basically a nice integration of Bourbon and Sherry influences that gives both a showing. The palate offers good concentration with medium dry, peppery, biscuity malt flavours leading into a juicy raisined finish. Concludes dry with a pleasant spiciness lingering. At the drier end of the whisky spectrum. 43% Alc./Vol.
