Launched in 1998, ‘Three Wood’ is a reference to this expression being made from whisky aged in a mix of ex-bourbon, ex-Oloroso sherry and ex-Pedro Ximinex casks. Three Wood has spent ten years in bourbon casks, up to two years in Oloroso butts and as many as two years in Pedro Ximénez butts.
Three Wood typically has a combined age of 12-14 years but carries no age statement.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 16/06/2010

Appearance:

Clear, honey brown.

Aroma:

Sweet honeyed nose with whiffs of buttered pancakes served with crispy bacon, maple syrup and burnt Christmas cake.

Taste:

Starts rich and heather honeyed with grippy, smoky tannins quickly overriding any sweetness. Notes of blackened Christmas cake with dry espresso coffee and apricot marmalade.

Aftertaste:

Finishes malty with creamy butterscotch and roasted hazelnuts.
