Established in the Dunbartonshire estate of Auchentoshan in 1823 by one Thorne, an engineer from Greenock. Who manufactured the ‘inter alia’ distillery plant. Their trademark clean, complex character starts with malted optic barley. Gently kilned, completely unpeated barley lets the Auchentoshan taste shine through, from their distillery in Glasgow.
Distillation takes the Distillers Beer from around 8% ABV (alcohol by volume) up to 81%. No other Scottish distillery insists on triple distilling every drop – double whisky distillation usually reaches just 70% ABV. The Auchentoshan story is about Distilling Different to create a Lowlands whisky.
Their whisky is matured in casks which held bourbon, sherry or fine wine. A selfless act of recycling? Not quite. It's an essential step in creating Auchentoshan - the spirit and the wood work together over many years, lending color and flavor to the finished whisky.
So it's no surprise we spend so much time and effort selecting precisely the right casks - or indeed in balancing the unique flavors each cask imparts. That way, they create a whisky with flavors right across the spectrum.
This award-winning Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been matured in three different cask types. From American Bourbon to Spanish Oloroso Sherry – and then, finally, Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks –the Three Wood is a rich, complex whisky with toffee and sherry flavors. Three Wood makes a cracking Auchentoshan & Ale, a mean Old Fashioned and a damn fine dram in its own right.
Tasting Notes: Fruit and syrup. Hazelnut with hints of cinnamon and lemon. A butterscotch sweetness adds to the overall complexity
