More information Laphroaig Triple Wood (Islay) Whisky


This expression of our 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 our standard Quarter Cask expression, the first maturation 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.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Bright gold

Nose: At 48%, 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

BodyPowerful yet with a creamy consistency

Palate: 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

Très difficile de le trouver en Espagne. La dernière bouteille s'achète à presque 15 euros de plus que le prix d'ici. Depuis mon voyage à Islay, c'est un mes favoris et je l'ai vu seulement dans quelques boutiques dutyfree. Beaucoup de bois et de saveur fumée, sèche en bouche. Cela laisse un gout qui dure longtemps, la parfaite compagnie pour une bonne conversation.

sehr schwer zu finden in Spanien. Hier habe ich die Flasche fast 15 Euro billiger bekommen als sonst. Seit meiner Reise nach Islay ist dies einer meiner Favoriten. Sehr holziger und rauchiger Geschmack, trocken im Mund, die perfekte Firma fuer eine gute Konversation.

Muy difícil de encontrar en España. La última botella la compre casi 15 euros mas que el precio que tienen aquí. Desde mi viaje a Islay es de mis favoritos y sólo lo había visto en alguna tienda dutyfree. Mucha madera y sabor a humo, seco en boca. Deja un gusto que dura mucho, la perfecta compañía para una buena conversación.
