Whisky reviews for Auchentoshan Three Wood

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 81.86 points.

  1. cloudyweedram scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A glass of Coca Cola and a piece of rum-soaked raisins cake.

    It is far from being a top quality whisky, but it is not bad, not just "not that bad". The combination of a NAS badge and multiple-cask-type-finishing seems often does more bad than good to a whisky and can easily provoke prejudice. Quit often this stereotype is correct and is a good indicator. But this one actually deserves a fair score.
    • Nose
      84 84
      The nose is full of dried plum and Coca Cola. To some this feels cheap and lab-made. Yet actually it is quite intriguing. It also has wafer biscuits, and soaked raisins. Underneath all these there is lime juice, and a little wood scent appeared over time. So, yes, nose-wise it is not complex (it is a NAS whisky after all), but it is also quite pleasant.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The mouthfeel is light, and it tastes quite like a piece of dense brown-sugar, rum-soaked raisins cake. Actually this is the dominant flavour. Gave it a few more chews there appeared a little blackcurrant juice, which added to the freshness.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish is dry and woody. Sadly the dried, dark fruit flavours did not linger. And, some bitterness appeared at the back of the throat.

  3. Benuz scored this whisky 81 points Newbie

    An accessible Whisky for a broader audience.
    It's sweet, dried raisins, plums, plenty of dark fruits & coca cola, some orange and chocolate.
    Is it top notch? No far from that, it lacks depth and balance for that. Is it enjoyable after a good meal? It sure is , nothing too complicated here.
    • Nose

      Woody tones on the background and dark fruit, plum jam and orange aroma's. Darker color from the Olorosso casks.
      Nose is actually quite enjoyable.
    • Taste
      80 80
      At first you get the nice sweet taste from the oranges and dark fruits. However it's quickly overpowered by sharp spices and a tangy oak mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      81 81
      medium to short finish , dry, a very slight hint of choclate, again quite oaky and some tangy biterness. Not a big fan of the finish.

  4. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Maturation in ex-bourbon casks followed by further maturation in an Oloroso sherry cask and finally in a sweet Pedro Ximenez sherry cask.

  5. GadflyDrinker scored this whisky 73 points Expert Junior

    This feel VERY flat. Tasting this as a 21 year old, even then I asked "is this how good it gets". Thank god that this is bottom of the barrel scotch. Did not even give the time of day to score each section.
