Auchentoshan American Oak is the standard expression of Auchentoshan, which is located in the Lowland region of Scotland and is the only "3 times distillation" distillery in Scotland.
A little reminder: In Scotland, distillation is generally carried out twice. We see that 3 times distillation is mostly preferred in Ireland. (How is whiskey produced?)
