Laphroaig Triple Wood – Great Tasting Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Laphroaig® is proud to be the world’s #1 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. As fall has arrived and the winter holidays will be upon us all soon enough, Laphroaig introduced its latest seasonal expression – Laphroaig Triple Wood.
Laphroaig Triple Wood is 96 proof and best enjoyed neat. This allows the powerful, yet slightly creamy consistency of the whisky to speak for itself.
The new Laphroaig Triple Wood follows a unique, triple maturation process that includes ex-bourbon barrels, 19th Century-style quarter casks, in addition to specially selected European Oak oloroso sherry casks.
The result of this process is a great tasting whisky, boasting a rich blend of creamy vanilla and hints of sweet fruit. Plus the whisky retains the distinctive smoky peat flavor that Laphroaig is well known for.
The new whisky from Laphroaig joins a complete family of Scotch whiskies, including: Laphroaig® 10-Year-Old, 10-Year-Old Cask Strength, Quarter Cask, 18-Year-Old, 25-Year-Old, QA Cask, plus Càirdeas.
John Campbell is the Master Distiller at Laphroaig and was quoted, “We are thrilled that our Friends of Laphroaig® members are just as passionate about their Scotch as we are. Triple Wood is the perfect seasonal expression for fall. Its bright gold color and bursts of peat, vanilla and fruit flavors embody the fall season and bring you back to Islay, the land that gives Laphroaig® its unique peaty notes.”
