Laphroaig Triple Wood is a new release from this popular Islay distillery.This Laphroaig single malt has been matured in three types of cask. The first is in American oak, ex-bourbon barrels.
We 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 we 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.
