Laphroaig Triple Wood

(70cl, 48%)

Laphroaig Triple Wood

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Laphroaig Triple Wood to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Triple Wood Bottling Note

A much loved 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.

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.

Laphroaig Triple Wood Reviews

Not well balanced

Extremely dark, coffee like - the sherry influence comes through heavily on the first nosing along with heaps of peat smoke. It's dark and nutty too, with a good treacle like sweetness wrapping around everything.
On the palette it's a spice bomb, very drying on the tongue. Very woody, notes of tobacco and dried fruit. It's musty and aromatic, but the smoke then takes over and kills everything.
The finish is long, the spices remain for a long while and the wood notes build.
Not for my taste this one.

Pleasant but complex

This is a lovely whisky. It has the peatiness one would associate with an Islay whisky but without the harshness of the standard 10 year old laphroaig. The woody notes combined with a subtle Sherry flavour make a pleasant but complex whisky which is surely best enjoyed on a cold winter’s night.

Laphroaig done well

Laphroaig makes among the peatiest scotches on the market. This one is no exception and is a very honest whisky. It's in your face and, quite frankly, I find that a redeeming quality. With that being said, it has a complexity to it that most other Laphroaig products don't. I'm giving it 4 stars simply because it's not Laphroaig's best offering, and it doesn't present the best value on the market, but, with that being said, I own a bottle and I enjoy it very much.

Subtle peat and balanced fruit flavors

I think most negative reviews are because people were expecting the strong traditional dominating Laphroaig peaty palate. But, this ones different. Consider this more like a cheaper version of Talisker18 with similar less peaty and balanced fruity, musty flavors. I was disappointed at first, but it grows on you. I would buy it again. Price $50 at local costco.

Too many cooks....

Knew this would be a bit different, so gave it a try. So much going on, they cancelled each other. Autumnal notes were more bitter to me. Sherry was masked and smoke was present, but more burnt toast rather than campfire. One person’s opinion, buy a gift size or buy a pour first.

Hands down the worst whiskey in existence!

I can't stress enough how much I enjoy a good peated and smokey whiskey, although this is possibly the furthest thing from that. Tasted as if someone mixed burnt ply wood with cheap rubber. Just the smell of it can make you sick. It's astonishing it made it to market. Not to mention the price tag they slapped on it, are you kidding me, you couldn't pay me to drink it. I wouldn't feed this to my worst enemy. Can't believe some people rated this brown waste water so highly. Im not sure if Laphroaig should either be ashamed or proud of producing the most potent poison to ever exist.

alot of single malt for the money

Laphroaig quarter cask was my favorite for getting alot of single malt for the money until i recently discover this master peace. Just 3 letters to describe the triple wood. W O W
You will get a slightly sweeter taste that is missing in the quater cask while getting the same kick. amazing you wont regret.

Mellow Laphroaig

Tried this for first time last night and surprisingly mellow due to last 2 years in sherry casks.Still very good,but not as intense as some Laphroaigs.Still good and very smooth and full flavoured.No rough edges here!
