Door number 7 of the Drinks by the Dram Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar is open and a sample of the Auchentoshan Three Wood, bottled at 43% is revealed!
On the nose of this whisky I can find creamy notes reminding me of rum raisins, mocha, toffee, chocolate, blackcurrant, raspberry, cherries and plums. Also a fresh wood note and green apples, tangerines and wood spices is found in the back of this nose.
The palate is for me much like the nose and it feels like a very balanced dram to me. There is a toffee and fruit sweetness mixing in with creamy vanilla and raspberry/strawberry jam notes. A soft and not long finish. Thanks to #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskyAdvent !
