This is the only Lowland whisky I have tried. From what I have heard Auchentoshan Three Wood is somewhat of an anomaly for the region. It is not delicate or subtle as many of the lowland malts are described. This does not however mean this is not a great whisky. On the nose there is Sherry, oak, brown sugar, caramel and vanilla. The palate delivers some of those sweet tastes of vanilla, fruitcake, orange peel and caramel then the powerful wood, spice and citrus notes really take over. The finish is long and lingering leaving a slightly smoky and sweet taste of charred oak barrel. A drop of water really brings out these beautiful flavours, overall a great whisky!
