Whiskey of the Month (September 2017): Laphroaig Triple Wood
An extension of the Quarter Cask expression. Special for its triple maturation, which creates a unique blend of our signature peat-smoked liquid with softer notes of fruit and spices. After a double maturation in American oak barrels, the liquid is transferred to smaller, 19th century-style European Quarter Casks to impart extra depth and fullness. This final stage allows for a slow maturation – all leading to a soft, complex and fully rounded flavour.
When tasted, Triple Wood begins with a subtle sherry sweetness before offering up spiciness and nuttiness and a huge peat flavour.
