Triple matured for tripled ex-cite-ment. 

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet), rumour has it his royal princeness Charles of Wales is a fan of the ‘L’ Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favourite Scotch.

Laphroaig Triple Wood is made in a similar fashion than their famous Quarter Cask. The main difference is that after they age it twice, in Bourbon barrels and then in small 19th century style Quarter Casks, they add a third maturation, in large European oak, Oloroso Sherry casks. This final maturation gives the Triple Wood extra complexity and a slightly sweet edge, making for a significant distinction between the Quarter Cask. Triple Wood is a limited edition, originally supposed for the European Travel Retail only, but luckily for all Laphroaig (and peat) fans, they released a limited amount to the *general* public, too. Thank the Whisky Gods for that (or Laphroaig's marketing department). The Triple Wood has won numerous awards in the past two years, most notably the Gold medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Ratings & Reviews
Greg
Greg,
Flavorful and smoky! This is scotch at its scotch best. An Islay with a full flavor profile and reasonable price is hard to find. This one combines them all in a Laphroig package. And you get a little piece of Scotland with each bottle! Slainte!
 
Adam
Adam,
Good stuff...full of that smoky goodness!
 
Nate

Smooth and peaty. You won't be disappointed with this unique and flavorful taste.
 
Jenni
Jenni,
Strong pleasant sherry note, with fruit and smoke in the taste. Aftertaste hitting with more smoke and spicyness.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Nice wood flavor and one of my favorites.
 
Blake
Blake,
It is Laphroaig. You can definitely get the extra wood flavor from out of this. I love it, but not as much as Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength.

Alexander,
That peat burns so good!

Favorite Islay scotch I’ve tried yet, I typically pair it with a cigar, though I’m not sure if it’s properly paired (?)

Sweeter than Laphroaig 10, similar smokiness with sherry notes! Beautiful! It is like making best friends with the worst enemy :)
 
Melville
Melville,
Superb. Not actually that distinctively Laphroaig, but what an enjoyable rounded malt. As some might say, quaffable. Softer than typical Laphroaig; warming, thanks to the maturation in sherry casks. Lovely
 
David
David,
Peaty, with a strong nose of ethanol. Takes some getting used to. Needs a drop or two of water to open up.

Being a highland guy this a fantastic Islay for the taste buds. Nice complexity and excellent smoothness and smoke.
 
Alec
Alec,
The sherry is prominent on the nose and lends a calming sweetness to the body overall note quite as smoky or peaty but the sweetness is just subtle enough to make this invitingly delightful.

Updating my rating after making it through most of the bottle. This drink has really grown on me and more of the complexities revealed themselves.

This had a great, smoky taste.

Extremely smooth. Sweet finish. If you're looking for a strong peat profile, this isn't for you.

Fantastic, smokey and smooth with just enough heat.
 
Maxwell

Great whisky, very light peat & smoke. Good finish with vanilla notes. A little heat on the back of the tongue.
 
Jeremiah
Jeremiah,
My first Islay. Sweet, smokey, long finish. I'd say a good starter to the peat/smoke area.

Nice and balanced. A bit too gentle for my liking of Laphroaig
