Laphroaig Triple Wood 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Islay Whisky
Age: 10 year old Whisky
Alcohol: 48%Volume: 700ml
An incredible new release from Laphroaig. This was originally launched for the duty free market, and it is a tour de force from the Islay distillery. First off, they mature this in bourbon barrels, before transfer into quarter casks, and a third maturation in Oloroso sherry European oak butts. Astonishing with oodles of peat smoke and sweetness.
Nose: Salted caramel brownie, flamed orange peel, a hearty whack of seaweed.
Palate: Oak-y smoke and salty sea air, paired with sweeter notes of Custard Cream biscuits and white grape.
Finish: Ginger snaps, rye toast, drying peat smokiness.
