Auchentoshan Three Wood 70cl 43°

Distillery : Auchentoshan / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 21117

This Lowlands Single Malt draws its unique complexity from a maturation in three types of casks: American Bourbon barrels, Oloroso Sherry casks and Spanish Pedro Ximénez wine casks.

Founded in 1823 in Northern Glasgow, at the feet of the Kilpatrick hills, Auchentoshan is one of the last three still operating Lowlands distilleries. This so typically Scottish name means the corner of the field in Gaelic.

Established in 1823 on the outskirts of North Glasgow, on the foothills of Kilpatrick, Auchentoshan is one of the last three Lowlands distilleries still operating.

This unpronounceable name with such a typically Scottish consonance means “the field corner” in Gaelic. Auchentoshan is the only Scotch Single Malt being triple-distilled, a custom usually associated with Ireland. This process imparts truly pure aromas to the distillate and creates a refined, elegant Single Malt with distinctive fruity character. As a pioneer on many aspects, Auchentoshan is the only distillery offering a “Three Wood” Single Malt, successively aged in three different types of casks (bourbon, Oloroso sherry and Pedro Ximenez). The new Auchentoshan range includes 12 year-old, 18 year-old and 21 year-old whiskies and two new, extremely rare limited series presented in a decanter and distilled in 1957 and 1965.

Colour: amber.

Nose: gourmet, rich and spicy, the first hit fully expresses Sherry and tobacco with a slight smoky sensation. Evokes then fruits and patisseries, with notes of orange cake, apricots, dates and almonds over a chocolate bed. When diluted, herbal notes (hay, peppermint) appear in the glass.

Palate: smooth and oily, marked by wax and precious wood. Subtle and syrupy, evolves on toffee, caramel, orangettes (candied orange peels with chocolate) and candied fruits.

Finish: everlasting and slightly tannic, with lemongrass, blackcurrant, plum and mild spices.
