Laphroaig Triple Wood Review

Laphroaig triple wood I always love being on Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire's tweet tastings and this is no exception, a cracking set of core range expressions from the brilliant Islay smoker that is Laphroaig.

This dram is matured in ex-bourbon then the same quarter casks as before before a final maturation is some ex-sherry casks that really add something a bit different to this dram.

Once again the guys at The Green Welly Stop are hard to beat for this one.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Sweet like chocolate with belgian milk chocolate covered raisins and vanilla essence with a much lighter cigar smoke note than i was expecting, lots of biscuity notes in this also.

Palate

Raisin and chocolate covered digestives with cinnamon topping and a cigar ash side order, there's a hint of demerera sugar in here also

Finish

chocolate covered demerera sugar flavoured cigar.
