Auchentoshan Three Wood, 48%

Price: $70 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Three Wood has been a key part of Auchentoshan's portfolio since 2002. It was matured in bourbon, then finished in oloroso and Pedro Ximénez casks. Orange peel, dried apricots, milk chocolate, and fresh-sawn oak on the nose. Toffee, stewed fruits, sherry, cinnamon, and wood spice on the palate. The finish is quite long, with malt, oak, and dark chocolate.
