Day 104 Drink: Auchentoshan Three Wood Single Malt Whisky
Auchentoshan is one of three Scottish Lowland distilleries. The distillery has been in production since 1823 and triple distills its Scotch.
Auchentoshan Three Wood is aged using three different barrel types: ex-Bourbon barrels and Spanish Olorosa and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. The whisky is a dark amber color and has a slight hay and grass aroma. The flavor opens smooth, with the presence of a bit of smoke and hazelnut. It finishes on an up note with just a touch of citrus.
