Laphroaig Triple Wood Reviews
3 Customer Reviews
This is my favourite Laphroaig, narrowly beating the wonderful Ten Year Old expression - the hint of sherry oak finishes it off perfectly. Just make sure you don't add too much water. If you like Laphroaig get a bottle.
I also tried this H2H with the QC, and found that the Triple Wood is initially less complex on the nose & mouth in comparison. However, a stronger driving warmth of peat soon comes through, with the sherry characteristics also prevalent. A good acquisition to any liquor cabinet for something different. However, my palate prefers the QC and Talisker.
No gig tonight, so I’m H2H with 3 wood and QC.. At first the QC seems to edge it. Wilder, more complex, more "trad." . But my QC has been open a lot longer. 3 wood is smoother, subtler, softer. Peat/ripe cherry/chocolate/farmyard nose reminds me of Uigeadal! . Big surprise on palate and finish is the sense of sucking tangerine boiled sweets in a farmyard. QC better? I'd say it's a "mood thang." Enjoy the 3Wood for what it is - great whisky by any standards.
