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.

Ratings & Reviews
Louis
Louis,
I really enjoyed how smooth it was compared to the 10year old, still had that lovely peaty taste though.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smoky, strong, a very enjoyable dram
 
Scott
Scott,
Loved it super smooth love the Peat !
 
Roy
Roy,
With a room full of my wife's excited friends busily chattering in parallel, at volume, this Laphroaig was the ideal antidote. Covertly enjoying the interesting flavours, silently smiling and nodding to another successful bottle, they were none the wiser...
 
WILLIAM
WILLIAM,
The flavor spiral tells it all... definitely Smokey to start, but vanilla, hint of fruit, & sweetness round it out. It’s very complex yet straightforward. Spill a drop on your hand & it smells like a campfire, taste a sip & it takes you for a ride. Once you get past the wonderful Smokey flavors, you can concentrate on the more subtle notes. Finish is fantastic.
 
James
James,
Not nearly as smooth as one might be led to believe. Not sensing any sherry at all. The classic Islay peat still carries the day - sweetness not so much.
 
GySgt
GySgt,
This is one of my favorites. It is very smooth almost to a fault as it is easy to get a little carried away with. The Smokey caramel and subtle sweetness make it a nice finish to a long day. This is a very good Scotch for those not looking for the highly peated or heavy smoke flavors . I enjoy many of the Laphroaig spirits and this is one of my favorites.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
A peat monster... with soft cuddly edges? Very rounded with a touch of sherry sweetness, but still impressively hearty.
 
Ankit
Ankit,
A little too peaty for my taste, but good overall
 
Dat
Dat,
Very smoky and strong presence of peat. I can see why some people like it because of the strong peat smell. The finish is quite smoky for me, and too long, but not in a nice yummy way... I can't taste anything else.
 
Dawson
Dawson,
absolutely one of the best scotches I've had, highly recommend if you want some peat, but it's still very smooth with sweet notes at the end.
 
Shaun
Shaun,
I was ver pleasantly surprised by this bottle. I went to the store saw this and read the profile, decide WTH and wow do I enjoy it. I'm a peat/sweet guy and this nails both.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Mild peat taste. I really enjoyed the fruit notes. Finishes well. Quite enjoyable on a cold evening.
 
Scott
Scott,
I love it

guest,
For someone who generally prefers Ardbeg over Laphroaig this one is a lot more up my alley. Way less "dirty" than the 10.
 
Luke
Luke,
Nose: fruit, sherry, some nuts, some peat smoke Taste: sweetness with gentle peat smoke, faint oak, medium strength finish with sweet bbq smoke and fruit
 
Rich
Rich,
Very smoky, complex.
 
Andilee
Andilee,
Love the smokiness and full flavor profile! Another great Islay from Laphroaig.
 
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
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
Alexander,
That peat burns so good!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Favorite Islay scotch I’ve tried yet, I typically pair it with a cigar, though I’m not sure if it’s properly paired (?)

All about the flavor. Glad my friends don’t like it as much as I do!!

Very good! Great balance
 
Piotr
Piotr,
Sweeter than Laphroaig 10, similar smokiness with sherry notes! Beautiful! It is like making best friends with the worst enemy :)
 
Alasdair
Alasdair,
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.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Delicious and smooth. One of my favorites. You wont go wrong with this one.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Very smoky; peat forward

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.

Dan
Dan,
One of my favorites love the wood and peaty notes.

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.
 
Ryan

Extremely smooth. Sweet finish. If you're looking for a strong peat profile, this isn't for you.
 
Will
Will,
Fantastic, smokey and smooth with just enough heat.
 
Maxwell
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
