Quick Overview

“There are 3 main ingredients for making Laphroaig – Barley, Water, and Yeast, but the secret ingredient is the People.” Laphroaig (La-froyg) is the story of a community. An uncompromising, tough and determined group of people who work to ensure that this defining whisky has always remained true to its origins.

Laphroaig whiskies - Like the islanders, Laphroaig may seem a little aloof at first, but make the effort, broach acquaintance and thye can guarantee you’ll have a warm and genuine friend for life. Take it neat or with a splash of soft water. Roll it around on your tongue. Release the pungent, earthy aroma of the blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley and the delicate, heathery perfume of Islay’s streams.

The award winning family of Laphroaig Whiskies ranges from the rich, pungent 10 Year Old to the smooth and exceptionally rare 40 Year Old. But whatever Laphroaig you choose, you can sense 200 years of loving care distilled into every bottle.

Laphroaig Triple Wood, this expression of their famous whisky, from the remote island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland, has enjoyed a triple maturation in 3 types of cask. Just as with their standard Quarter Cask expression, the first maturation is in American oak, ex-Bourbon Barrels. They then select the most suitable of these barrels, containing a range of different aged spirit and transfer into small 19th Century style Quarter Casks for a second maturation. The final maturation is in specially selected, large European oak, Oloroso Sherry Casks.

This triple cask maturation results in what they think is the perfect marriage of peat, oak, and sherry notes, retaining the traditional Laphroaig peat smoke aroma, balanced by the subtle sherry sweetness and hints of sea salt. Laohroaig triple wood is finally bottled non- chill filtered, at ABV 48% for maximum flavor.

Please note since Laphroaig Triple Wood is non - chill filtered it may go cloudy when water is added in the glass, this is perfectly normal for a non – chill filtered whisky.

Details

Laphroaig Triple Wood has enjoyed a triple maturation in three types of cask. The first maturation in American oak, ex-bourbon barrels, and then transferred into small 19th century style Quarter Casks for a second maturation. The final maturation is in specially selected, large European oak, Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a wonderfully rich and powerful Islay single malt.

Nose:        Straight from the bottle, the initial flavour is quite sweet with a gentle mixture of sweet raisins and creamy apricots with just a trace of the dry peat smoke at the back, the smoother nutty flavours combine all these flavours into one smooth, syrupy whole. With a touch of water the peat smoke comes to the fore and masks the gentler fruitier notes. Even with the maturation being carried out in 1st fill bourbons, quarter casks and sherry butts, the intense bonfire ash smell of the earthy peat cannot be masked.
Color: Bright Gold
Body: Powerful yet with a creamy consistency
Taste: With no water, a large initial burst of peat belies the slight lack on the nose but is gentled on the tongue by the creamier flavours of vanilla and fruit with just a suggestion of sherry sweetness. With a trace of water the peat reek is gentled, allowing the more complex flavours of citrus fruits and spices to come through. A slight tang comes from the European Oak balancing the creamier American White Oak.
Finish: Mouth filling and extremely long but balanced by the sweet smooth caramel taste.
ABV: 48%
