Featuring their own version of the Holy Trinity, Laphroaig is introducing the Triple Wood single malt scotch whisky. This expression is the result of a triple maturation process in three different casks. It begins with the standard Quarter Cask expression, which is first matured in American oak barrels used to mature bourbon. The next process of maturation involves a substantial soak in 19th century style Quarter Casks. Finally, the third wood to infuse its flavor on the Triple Wood whisky are European oak, Oloroso sherry casks. The end result is a traditional Islay whisky with hints of peat and smoke, that are countered nicely by the sweetness of sherry plus a hint of sea salt. The Triple Wood is bottled non-chill filtered at a solid 48% ABV, so this will definitely get you that buzz when the Holiday Season rolls in. Oh, just in case you’re wondering, Laphroaig is pronounced ‘la-froyg’ – that should impress your friends for sure. ~$68.
