I know the Three Wood is young and a bit rough but I think I probably like it more than this more expensive version of Auchentoshan. The 16 doesn't seem to have a lot of depth although I did like it. On the Nose there is a slight bourbon scent with cherries and vanilla predominantly but also a very floral scent. For a cash strength its Palate is very smooth with no alcohol hotness and a slight sweet malty flavor. With water the palate really dulled down. It has a very long finish.

If you rate the 16 year old 8.5, what would you rate the three wood?

I would ideally rate them side by side, which I didn't but I think I'd rate the three wood at 8.5 too but for different reasons. I love a sherry wood influence that is balanced, which I think it is and I would also say one gets more bang for the buck in the the three wood.

Cheers! I'll keep all that in mind when I find some Auchentoshan's around locally.
