Aged in three different casks. What don't you say.
Antique records from the year 1800 mention an illegal Duntocher Distillery, which may have been a predecessor to the legal AuchentoshanDistillery. A license for distillation was obtained in 1823. It is the only Scottish distillery left employing a true full-time third distillation. This makes for a sweeter and more delicate Scotch, which is unique. The Distillery is located near Glasgow (that's why it's also known as Glasgow's Malt Whisky) in the Lowland region of Scotland.
Auchentoshan Three Wood is a no-age statement Scotch, which is aged in three different cask types. First in Bourbon barrels, next in Spanish Oloroso Sherry and finally it's moved to Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. The final maturation gives it extra nuances and a layer of very intriguing flavors, resulting in a dangerously drinkable dram. Suitable as a fantastic surprise at dinner parties? Yes. Suitable as an evening drink with a cigar? Yes. You get the point.
Auchentoshan 3-wood is a unique whisky with rich spicy flavors and an incredibly smooth finish reminiscent of Aberlour a’bunadh but even more pronounced in body and flavor. This whisky is even more fascinating given the very modest pricing. For those who are not into super peaty whiskies, this is something that is definitely worth the buy..
Really really enjoyed this whisky. Rich, chewy and delicious. Lots of chocolate and toffee notes with hints of red fruit on the nose. Silky, long finish makes this an excellent evening tipple
Nose: Fruits and spice, almost brandy like. You can notice the bourbon and sherry influence.
Palate: More of the same, quite spicy, there’s a woody note that doesn’t quite balance and it’s a bit thin, underlying spirit doesn’t really make the most of the sherry.
Finish: Quite dry and spicy.
Overall: Doesn’t quite hang together, but by no means a bad drop.
Very nice nose of red currant, cinnamon, berry jam, fragrant Tahitian vanilla, and even a little bit of crusty baguette. Opens up beautifully. Taste gave me plum, Biscoff, cookie, hints of clove and toffee. But overly sweet syrupy notes as well plus a bit of a harsh dry oak quality that didn't work on me. A good, enjoyable dram overall but not quite top shelf.
Sweet & thick, like sticky toffee pudding. Some figs, sultanas & a bit of smoke. There’s no subtlety or complexity here, just power. Sweetness with definitely appeal to Bourbon drinkers. Paid $60 which seems right; wouldn’t pay more than that.
Smooth and sweet. Can’t go wrong
A smooth oak and honey taste. A delicious dram.
Is not so sweet, is mellow, very complex with great finish, great single malt
Awesome. As a beginner I need the “kick in the teeth” to be without cleats. And this delivers. Newbie’s dream scotch. The Sherry is on top but deep within its syrup and the back end follows through with a nice bit of spice. Update: my taste buds have finally evolved. I get hit with a woody flavor at first sip. Very nice. Up one star
This was lovely. Really opened up with a drop of water. Will definitely buy a bottle.
Tasty little number
It is an outstanding, complex, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long & warming death with notes of thick dark treacle, oak & green fruits.
it is a lovely dram but it has a stronger taste of Peat than I was expecting, but still very drinkable.
This bottle becomes more drinkable after opening and sitting a bit. With a little time, there is a hint of sweet maple that comes out. This is a staple on my shelf. It has a lovely rich warm burn and drinks very smooth. No traces of peat, so I like that. (others have different preferences and may find that a turn off) A good dram just about anytime.
Literally my favorite whisky. Tastes like drinking the forest... Delicious!
This is a great go-to Scotch. Very smooth and not at all smokey. Great with or without ice.
Grassy, malty, and loads of floral. Not really to my preference.
Really nice sherry bomb up front. Tasty dates and toffee on the back end. The pleasantly surprising hint of marshmallow is enjoyable. The malt texture is incredibly satisfying.
VERY FLORAL, oak barrel finish. such a smooth finish! Oak and honey.
"this is what its like to fall in love a second time."
Dark amber color, light on the peat, but rich in the flavor. My favorite scotch.
Smoky oak. Charred wood. Not too complex but flavorful. Enjoyable
Kind of tastes like wood and shoe polish
Hands down my go to
Very good. One of my go to scotches. It is good on its own or in a Rusty Nail.
An extremely pleasant surprise that absolutely overwhelmed me with great and interesting aroma and flavor. My favorite Scotch without question.
My go to. I enjoy the oak flavor
I love it, it has just the right amount of oaky flavor to it, perfect on the rocks or well
Not great. Least favorite of the three from the "In the Mood for Wood" taster.
Strong alcohol and tangy taste, smell upsets my stomach
Nose is nutty and Sherry. Taste is malty, sweet and mild. Great easy drinker.
Unique, interesting, balanced. Like everything about it
One of my favorites. Haven’t had better for the price.
This is my first scotch. I am quite pleased with it but do not have a lot to compare it to. It is fruity and sweet. I struggle to decide if this is something I would always buy or is it something I just would try and not remember too much. My rating reflects a better than average.
Beautiful caramelized Amber Color, Spice, orange, and rich sherry flavor that are blended so perfectly together! warm woodsy spicy finish
My first encounter with Auchentoshan was a birthday gift many years ago,
Still the whisky that made me turn my eye towards the lowlands and speyside 👌
Nose 👃 ; Cacao, vanilla, sweet baking spices,
Taste 👅 ; Chocolate, tobacco, light liquorice, sherry, dark fruits,
Finish ; Warm and long,
9 /10 🥃
Grab this when you want to taste a cask influenced scotch. It taste like woodshop smells. But in a very good way.
Amazing Smell; Figs, raisins, spices tobacco. The flavor when served neat is a little thin, but has the spices and tobacco. If you add a drop or two of water it gets creamier and enhances the tobacco and some oakiness. Really nice smooth scotch.
Nice everyday scotch. It goes down nicely with a hint of hazelnut & chocolate with a hint of berry.
Very smooth. It is very approachable and warming.
Harsh finish, nice up front.
Sweet and smooth. One of my favorites so far!
I tried this while quite new to scotch. I must say I enjoyed it very much. I am no stranger to scotches by any means and i found this scotch great for a cold, or cool evening. the warming effect is great.
This is a great first introduction to Scotch. I love the sweet, almost after dinner, taste.
Very soft and smooth, almost rum like
Fantastic for the money. One of my favorites.
This is currently my favorite whisky. The complexity is wonderful, the texture delightful and the afterglow is perfect.
This is a wonderful, complex, syrupy whisky. My current favorite. Enjoy it in small quantities and savor the complex flavor palate.
This is like Brown Sugar melting on your tongue!
Really enjoyed this whisky.
Love it. Easy to forget name of distilery and if you just type in 3 wood all kinds of useless items show up.
this feels like brown sugar melting on your tongue. I love it!
Great flavor on the nose. One of my go-to sipping drinks.
Never been a scotch drinker, more of a bourbon/whiskey fan but this was pretty good.
Première dégustation : plus facile à boire que Talisker.
Very flavorful. Dark and beautiful in the right glass.
So smooth and buttery
delicious scotch...smooth and somewhat bourbon like.
Nice malt notes with orange and very smooth, I love a nice neat glass of this. It is definitely one of my go to favorites.
New to really tasting Scotch, but this was recommended by a friend of mine who is a Scotch drinker. Very enjoyable and easy transition for me from Bourbon. Very smooth with notes of toffee and orange or citrus that balances it very nicely.
Very smooth, great flavors from the three casks. It's my new favorite whisky to bring with in my flask.
As my first serious scotch, loved it! Its smooth and the caramel notes are heavenly!
Very sweet and raisiny
Very good taste for a very good price!
Nice, complex- fruity. Tolerable long finish.
Amazingly complex. Hints of warm wood and toasty toffee.
Great scotch. Sherry with slight wood. Smooth finish.
Oh yeah. That's nice. Good sherry taste. A little thicker.
Hints of raisin and woody smoke.
Amazing fruity taste, the toffee to the nose is wonderful.
Sweet whith rich sherry, dark fruits and a bit of vanilla. Very smooth.
One of my current favorites. Wonderful nose and smooth finish
Sweet but soft, oak, smooth
Caramel, oak, a touch of dark chocolate...very sweet and smooth
Smooth, easy drinking scotch. A little sweet, but not overpoweringly so.
I love it's sweet, smooth taste.
Best ph whisky in the world
Meh. Poor balance. My least favorite scotch whisky distillery.
Reasonably priced and lovely flavours , a great everyday dram!
Just Love it!
This is one of my all time favourites, this is my treat when I think I need one
