Auchentoshan Three Wood Single Malt Scotch
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 Auchentoshan Distillery. 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.
