Auchentoshan Three Wood Scotch Whisky - 43% - 700ml
This Lowland malt from Glasgow has spent a fair few years in oak, and not just one, but 3 types of wood. The majority of the time is spent in ex-Bourbon Barrels (up to 10 years), then it is finished in Oloroso for 2 years, and finally, another 2 in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. On the nose, berry fruit, plums, brown sugar and orange. The palate brings forth the nuttier and fruitier notes of the sherries, dark ripe rich fruit and woody spice. The finish is long, fresh, fruity and sweet. Great on its own but versatile in cocktails.
