To The Eye Rich golden bronze. To The Nose Blackcurrant, brown sugar, orange, plum and raisin. To The Tongue Fruit and syrup. Hazelnut with hints of cinnamon and lemon. A butterscotch sweetness adds to the overall complexity. To The End Fresh and fruity, with long lasting oaky sweetness.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - (Tried & True Award)- The dry, herbal, nearly delicate opening aroma is seductively tangy but after a few minutes of air contact it explodes into aromatic fireworks that include toffee, seared meat, new leather, lightly sweetened breakfast cereal, marshmallow, lanolin. The taste menu features deep flavors of toasted malt, sherry, fresh, new honey, black pepper, citrus rind. Finishes long, supple, gently fruity, succulent.
"The 'three wood' name refers to the three casks used to mature this Lowlands Scotch: American Bourbon, Spanish Oloroso Sherry and Pedro Ximenez Sherry. Married together, the result is a maple syrup hue, an oaky, toffee-like scent, and sweet dried-fruit flavors that fade into a lingering, luscious caramel finish. A particularly dessert-friendly single malt."
