Laphroaig Triple Wood Single Malt Whisky

Laphroaig Triple Wood Single Malt Whisky has enjoyed a triple maturation in three types of casks. The first maturation is in American oak, ex-Bourbon Barrels. Then, the most suitable of these barrels, containing a range of different aged spirit are selected and the spirit is transferred into small 19th Century style Quarter Casks for a second maturation. The final maturation is in large European oak, Oloroso Sherry Casks.

Nose: Sweet with a mixture of sweet raisins, creamy apricots and a trace of dry peat smoke.
Palate: A burst of peat first then vanilla and fruit and a suggestion of sherry sweetness
Finish: Mouth filling and extremely long but balanced by the sweet smooth caramel taste.
