Laphroaig Triple Wood Scotch
Produced once a year in very small batches, Laphroaig “Triple Wood” is a limited edition release which has been matured in three types of casks. The spirit is first matured for 5 – 13 years in Maker’s Mark ex-bourbon barrels, then transferred into small 19th century-style quarter casks for the second maturation. After aging in these casks for 9 months, the whisky is transferred into specially selected Oloroso sherry casks for their final maturation, which is split into two parts – the whisky spends 9 months in first fill sherry butts and then 21 – 24 months in refill sherry butts. This extensive aging has imparted remarkable flavor and texture to the whisky, creating a truly unique expression of Laphroaig. To preserve the intricate balance of flavors, “Triple Wood” has not been chill-filtered. On the nose Laphroaig “Triple Wood” offers sweet aromas of raisin, apricot, walnut and vanilla embedded in a bold note of earthy peat smoke. The rich, full bodied palate opens with an initial burst of peat smoke, but is softened by a suggestion of sherry sweetness, along with flavors of vanilla, citrus fruit and peppery spice. The long, dry finish offers smooth notes of caramel accented by a hint of salted cashew.
