Triple Wood Bottling Note

An incredible new release from Laphroaig. This was originally launched for the duty free market, and it is a tour de force from the Islay distillery. First off, they mature this in bourbon barrels, before transfer into quarter casks, and a third maturation in Oloroso sherry European oak butts. Astonishing with oodles of peat smoke and sweetness.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 24 hours.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Molasses and oily toffee. Dates, walnuts, notes from the Maker’s Mark barrels (vanilla, toastiness, sweetness etc). We got oodles of butter, zest, cool wood smoke, almond, and passion fruit.

Palate: Dry and medicinal, with exotic spices, perhaps even some turmeric. The palate is surprisingly savoury at first, with what John described as “dry dampness” (taste and it’ll make sense!) - think musty wood sheds and hints of moist autumnal forest floor. The sherry notes are there too, but rather than being the big Christmas pudding flavour one often expects from Oloroso-aged whisky, we are instead treated to a much more restrained iced fruitcake, graced with hints of Laphroaig’s classic smoke.

Finish: Oaked. The mustiness carries into the finish, which lasts for a good while, with oily spices and dried fruit.

    One of the worlds great Islays.

    Lagavulin Killer for sure.

    THIS, Laga16, Laph QC and Ardbeg Ugedail I could probably drink - with pleasure - for the rest of my life.

    One of my absolute favorites

    This bottle has so much to offer, the pungent medicinal nose we expect from laphroaig, and a palate filled with nuts, honey, and toffee, with a beautiful finish. I would highly recommend this to any lovers of islay

    This is a fantastic whisky. Very rich with an additional sherry layer added to the standard quarter cask. The sherry is added in a subtle way so it doesn't overpower the normal Laphroaig characteristics. The nose is also very complex and the sherry adds some fruitiness. The finish is extremely long and pleasant with the typical laphroaig smokiness at the very end. Great !

    Smoky is an understatement - The first smell is like a burning tyre, if you can get past that your in for a treat.
    I say a treat, if your lover of TCP!
    There may have been other flavours in there but why bother? A fine whisky should be a beautiful thing, not something that requires a glass of mouthwash as a chaser.

    Disappointed with Ardbeg???

    I have no words!! This is a very good whisky but the Ardbeg is in a class of its own...

    second bottle after 2 or so years

    .. tried this a couple of years ago head to head with the Ardbeg 10 and was so disappointed with the Ardbeg which cost me about the same as the TW. the triple wood had lots more character, better texture, and no nasty chemical cleaner notes that was dominant in the Ardbeg. reading my notes from the first bottle,Nose; smoke , slight tar, sherry, hints of toffee, raspberry, water helps developing flavours ,a definite leather note to the nose, oak ,nice fruit cake and raisins .peat nicely prominent.strong slight citrus taste after the initial burst of smoke subsides a bit. my score 87/100. On to the Sscond bottle,nose not as strong as first bottling, peat, soft fruit, molasses , slight tar,taste; peat,salt, pepper(slight)well intergrated sherry, cranberries again only slight).not suah a coating texture as first bottle. seems to have been tamed a bit definitely more balanced than 2011/12 bottling. almost like it lost something. time will tell. initial score 80/100.

    Falls off the sides of my tongue...

    ... it's decent, but the quarter cask is much better value.

    Wishing for cask strength!

    I just got a bottle of this and it is truly a great whisky. Reminds me of the Corryvreckan (perhaps my favorite of all time), watered down to 48%. There's definitely some Laphroaig medicinal there, and probably more oak than the corry. It's not quite as sharp as the other Laphroaigs (which are all fighting for top-5 all-time spots). I have absolutely no problem buying more of these, but it seems you could make something similar by mixing another Laphroaig and a corry or even oogie, though it may not be any cheaper to do it that way. Still, distinction counts for something and this, sitting between two others, just doesn't have it and won't compete for a top-5 in my book. Top 10 is likely nonetheless. If they came out with a cask-strength version of this however.... Laphroaig are you listening?

    Smoke. Malt. Spice. Incredible.

    Having long been a huge fan of Caol Ila 12 and Talisker 10, but not of Laphroaig 10, I decided to take a gamble on a $70 bottle of the Triple Wood after advice from a scotch connoisseur at my local liquor store. Not only did the gamble pay off for me, it paid off for Laphroaig as I'm now a lifetime fan, sure to buy bottle after bottle for as long as they produce it!

    On the nose, definite smoke but elegant, not bonfire and ash like Lagavulin. Balancing the smoke is butter, custard, and caramel and sweet fruit with hints of vanilla.

    To the palate, spicy smoke, pepper, with a long, warm malty spicy finish.

    The sherry cask definitely adds a spicy sweet balance that I personally like in fine Scotch. Too much smoke and iodine feels like a punch in the mouth (Laphroaig 10). No smoke feels like something very important is missing (Balvenie Double Wood) and too much sherry just feels like drinking sweet syrup (McCallan). This is much more well rounded and balanced with lots of complex flavors none overpowering. Though the smoke, like any classic Islay, is very much in the forefront but so very well complemented with the extra oak and sherry influences.

    Buy it! Savor it!

    A little taste of Heaven

    Felt that the simple pleasures of life and robust taste of peat were drawn out in this masterpiece. To the mindful creator (s) of this amazing bottle of Scotch. Thanks from Nova Scotia, Canada...

    Iodine in the mist

    This is the most maritime expression of Laphroaig and its iodine aroma and taste remind me of walking a seaweed strewn beach after a windstorm. This time, Laphroaig deserves its title as the most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies.

    Fit for a King!

    Can there be anything better in life than to sit at ones fireside with my old dog Camilla a glass of Laphroaig in hand and talk to my plants. The nearest I will get to feeling like a King.

    Its a lot better than the 10 and compares favourably with the 18 but ardbeg 10 is much better for the money.

    A more rounded Laphroaig

    This is fantastic. I love the 10yo and the quarter cask. I miss the 15yo. I am possibly putting this in as my favourite Laphroaig.

    2nd April 2013

    Had my first taste of this at Laphroaig last week

    What a fantastic dram. So much more balanced than their normal 10 year old or the Quarter Cask. The only competition in the same price range is the 10yo Cask Strength.

    My favorite Scotch

    I HOPE they make more of this asap - it's the best!!

    16th July 2012

    Milder than 10 year

    I liked it, even though it basically felt like the 10 year old, but milder... which would make it more broadly accessible, but I for one like the peat and smoke to almost be overpowering

    27th June 2012

    Not the best Laphroaig

    To me this one seems to be a tamed version of QC.

    6th February 2012

    triple wood

    if you like quarter cask, you will LOVE this, it's excellent, sweetness and strong toffee and vanilla notes
