Laphroaig Triple Wood
70cl / 48% abv
Triple maturation in 3 different casks creates this unique expression from Laphriog. Formally a travel retail exclusive, it is now available on the general market due to its popularity. The whisky begins its journey in ex-bourbon american oak casks, before being moved to bespoke quarter casks, and finally ending up in Oloroso sherry casks.
Nose: There is an initial honey sweetness followed by dried fruits with a dry peat smoke coming through.
Palate: The palate is hit by a burst of peat and smoke with creamy vanilla and hints of sherry toward the end.
Finish: An extremely long, sweet, mouth coating finish.
