Proof66 Notes

The "Triple Wood" benefits from aging in (not surprisingly) three different cask types. Oak, ex-bourbon is the first cask, while old school quarter casks are the second resting place. The third and final home for the Triple Wood is oak, Oloroso Sherry casks.

If you like smoky Scotch, you will like this single malt – absolutely delicious! Nice sweet nose with vanilla and cigar ash, but not overbearingly smoky. There’s a touch of iodine to remind you your nosing Laphroaig. The mouthfeel is quite oily with a nice balance of oak, bacon fat, caramel, & peat smoke. There’s a nice rounded flavor of chocolate, raisins, and figs from the Sherry influence that really stands out. The finish is nice and long and quite rewarding. This is very similar in taste to the Quarter Cask and the Ardbeg Uigeadail. The Triple Wood is $20 more than the Quarter Cask and the same price as the “Oogie” (but lower ABV & less complex). For those reasons, I would pick the Quarter Cask and Uigeadail over the Triple Wood, but not by much. I’ve never had anything from Laphroaig I didn’t like and this is no exception! Highly recommend for any Islay Scotch lover!

Cheaper than the 10 year old in my area. And a little better IMO. Nipping at the heels of Lagavulin16 for the top spot among "Islays I can afford." Definitely underrated, if my bottle from 2015 represents a consistent level of quality.

My all-time favorite scotch so far! Woody, smokey, peaty and very drinkable.

4.3/5, really liked it. I wasn't able to discern dry red wine or sweeter wine whatsoever, rather the whole flavor profile fell together rather seemlessly creating a lovely rich body with laphroaig's trademark long finish. I will add that I haven't been as impressed with laga's wine finishes.... Actually this is probably the finest wine finished islay I've had to date.

Due to the low 2012 rating and the lack of reviews here, I'd say that this bottle may be one of the Scotch world's best kept secrets. It's delicious. It's like taking the Quarter Cask and dumping some thick, silky sweetness into the flavor profile. If you can find it for less than $55 buy two because the price is probably going to go up more than it has already.
