Auchentoshan Three Wood Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    The Three Wood is intense, sweet and complex with a rich golden bronze appearance. 

    It has a blackcurrant, brown sugar, orange, plum and raisin aroma with a fruit and syrup taste. 

    The finish is fresh and fruity with long lasting oaky sweetness.

    Floral notes on the nose. Quite a bit of burn. Dry finish. Medium length palate. Relatively smooth and comparable to a 5-6 yr old.

    My favorite Scotch so far. I moved onto scotch to try something different (perhaps better) than the fine cognac's I am fan of. At first I almost went back to cognac's since I like the sweetness. My first introduction to Scotch was The Glen livet 12, and 15, which were okay. Than the McCallan 12 (and also 15 I believe) which were also just okay as well. Than GlenMorangie 10 year which was a bit too mellow and fruity for me, not very complex. Then I found AUCHENTOSHAN THREE WOOD (which had no indication as to how old it was) this is THE CHAMP!!! This is the best cognac like Scotch, yet more complex with better and more variety of flavor notes. I won't go into all the different flavors, it seems to vary among different individuals. All I have to say is if you like sweet and malty notes (among others), rich and complex, but smooth with just enough bite, this is it. Thank You Auchentoshan now lower the price a bit $58 for 750ml makes me limit my consumption. Five Stars.

    Has a rum like smell, nail polish remover, thick chocolate ganash, sherry, green apples, blackberry, toffee. Smooth on palate, no real after burn. Nice bottle.

    This Scothc is amazing for just something to sit back and enjoy - whether woman or man - nothing better than this scotch, your hot wife next to you, and smoking cigars together and enjoying this fine Three Wood. It''s something that both of you can enjoy. After many trips to Scotland, this is something we both enjoy together! We will order many more bottles.

    Where have you been all my life .........? As a big follower of the Islay's and the Macallan's this was an unexpected Christmas present. It tastes great, and full of high sherry notes and long after tastes of thick dark spicy chocolate and hazelnut, very slightly bitter at the end, but that's probably a personal note, which is what it's all about any way. Very impressed.

    I'm fairly new to whisky but this was recommended and was by far the smoothest I've tried. Dangerously so, as one painful morning revealed. It's not stopping me buying another bottle, though.

  • Scotch Fan 29 September 2013

    Unbalanced and awkward dram with particularly strange notes on the nose. Not what you would typically expect from Auchentoshan. I don't understand this Three Wood expression winded up with multiple gold medals, maybe the bottle that I purchased was bunk? At any rate, after finishing a bottle of Laphroaig Three Wood, this was a major disappointment. I guess you get what you pay for...

  • Al 7 August 2013

    So is this a 12 year old then? The guy in the shop said it was a 9 I believe (I know, that is rare). Great aroma and aftertaste, very smooth I miss a heavier body though... Could this be because of not being quite and old whisky? Is it just a Lowland thing? I suppose the reply Dave Worthington got was right anyway... Don't miss out on the Fino wine scent on the cork!

    old fashioned three wood is epic.

  • Anonymous 28 March 2013

    This one here is a TRUE VALUE! If you are a sherryhead, well, price wise it doesent get any better. BIG sherry, Big cream, SUPER sweet. if your not into any of those profiles, stay away, if you DO LIKE them, well, your in for a real treat. Definateley a desert scotch as the PX does wonders for this malt and it is one that I'll continue to stock.

    I am lucky to have about 70 different malts to choose from, but for a winter warmer by a peat fire this is the one. I have the Malt so where is that peat fire.

    I wrote to Auchentoshan and asked what age this whisky was. They kindly replied that this was a 12 year old whisky, matured for 10 years in bourbon casks then finished for one year in Oloroso Sherry and then one year in Pedro Ximenez Sherry. Just opening my bottle now.....

  • TWE Admin 3 January 2012

    HH Blair: They don't list an age, but it isn't a particularly old whisky a far as we know.
