Description

Laphroaig Triple Wood is aged in three different types of cask, including American oak ex-Bourbon barrels. We then pick and choose the most suitable spirits from these barrels, ranging in age. These are blended and transferred into small 19th Century Quarter Casks for a second maturation. This gives them more contact with the wood, imparting notes of spice and cedar.
Finally, the spirit is moved into our specially selected large European oak Oloroso sherry casks for that final touch of sherry sweetness. This whisky matures and develops slowly during this final stage, lending it a complex and full-bodied flavor.
A true crowd-pleaser, Laphroaig Triple Wood is a softer expression of our classic Islay Scotch. It goes through a three-stage maturation process which adds notes of dried fruit, spice and nuts to the unforgettable taste of peat smoke and salt that Laphroaig is known for. Truly powerful, this punchy whisky has a creamy consistency with flavors of raisins and apricots. This richly flavored Scotch whisky should be served neat, over ice or with a dash of cold water.
Laphroaig Triple Wood begins the same way as our other expressions. First the malted barley is dried and toasted over a peat-fuelled fire, which lends a subtle smoky flavor. Next, it’s mixed with the waters of the Kilbride Stream and distilled into pure spirit. This is added to ex-Bourbon barrels — the insides of which are charred to impart flavors of sweet vanilla. Our master distillers then sample the spirit from multiple barrels in our storehouse, and choose the most suitable ones for Laphroaig Triple Wood.
