Smoky sweetness on the nose. Woody. Tastes like burnt firewood.
The first was the greatest thing, this peat and then woodspicys, Caramel and dark chocolate. Genialer Laphroaig
peat, smoke, sherry, oak
Spännande och komplex. Träig och högklassig, något av en favorit
Stark doft av trä, linolja och ny skinnklädsel
Likt doften plus en kryddig finish
Lång, kryddig men övergår till en träsmak
A very, Very good Islay Whisky.
Dark Smoke, huge amounts of Sea spray and sweet medicine. after a while in the glass a nice apple, brown sugar (Almost Toffee) and rounded spice appears
So Delicious, apples, cough syrup and loads of salty smoke and then in the middle is a menthol note and seaweed. Also a nice spice and woodiness arrives
The menthol note is strong and lingers with a little toffee and slight apple

sweet peat. a delicious twist. smells like wood and peat fresh out of the gate but then turns to fresh gingersnap cookies and molasses. tastes divine. sherry and barrel
A delicious Laphroaig with a great price-performance ratio. Sweet sherry and fruits, peaty smoke, smoothness. Coloured and non chill-filtered.
Peaty smoke, sherry, vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, some oak notes.
Sweetness and smoke. Brown sugar, caramel, oak, sherry sweetness, vanilla, some spices and dark fruits.
Mouthwatering sweet and spicy, smoke, oak, sherry, honey and liquorice, slightly salty.
I didn't use the glencairn but a V shaped glass, so I didn't pick up a lot of things on the nose. My fault, but I have to give less points, next time gonna do it right.
toffee, vanilla, sweet, almond and obv peat.
So much salt! Like it
Subtle influence of the sherry
Peaty, but more like forest humus
Oaky, smoky finish. I didn't get the sherry here, maybe next time
A quintessential Laphroaig. Intense, smokey, peaty, powerful. This is my kind of whisky.
Laphroaig smoke up front, with a little sweetness/woody notes on the taste
Typischer Laphroaig Rauch in der Nase: medizinisch-maritim, fast fischig, Austern kommen mir in den Sinn. Dahinter etwas süß und vanillig.
Im Mund weich, voll und rund, dabei fruchtig-süß.
Der Abgang fügt eine ordentliche Portion Zartbitterkeit der Eiche hinzu, behält aber den Grundcharakter der vorherigen Eindrücke.
Schöne runde Laphi Abfüllung: voll, süß-rauchig, charakteristisch Islay. Im Vergleich zum Ardbeg An Oa (ähnliche Fass-Zusammensetzung) weniger Eiche, etwas weniger süß und weniger grasig (während der Ardbeg "grün" wirkt, wirkt der Laphroaig "gelb").
laphroaig with sherry and power
perfect blend of peat, wood and sweetness. not too much of any of it. just enough peat for that peat head. worth buying anytime
the nose on this whisky is quite brilliant, but that spot on balance of fruity richness, wood, smoke and honey doesn't really reappear in the taste or finish, or this would easily be a (near) 90 points whisky. Overall I really like this, but I feel I prefer the quarter cask a bit more as it has a bit more depth, some 'oomph' that the Triple Wood is lacking.
sweet, fruity, cake, marsipan, (vanilla)oil, nutty, old wood, you really need to work and take your time to pick up some of the usuual, in your face Laphroaig mineral-ashy-peaty signature
A surprisingly soft arrival with wood and nuts at first and only the avalanche of mineral peatiness and campfire smoke second - but it's an avalanche none the less.
long, oily, peaty and smokey with some vanilla in the back
Well worth your attention, peat smoke with the sweetness coming through from Sherry and Bourbon casks. The quarter casks add a robust woody depth. Another winner from Laphraoig.
heavy peat, smoke, savory, bit harsh
nice, peaty whiskey with some sweet notes
if you haven't tried this, don't wait..well worth adding to ones collection..
peat and smoke.. perfect blend and unique
the smoke and peat grab your attention from the start .. but for a 48%abv it is quite easy to drink
the finish to me was a nice linger of smoke and wood, very complex, leaves me wanting another taste to see what else hides in there.
much better than regular quarter cask
Clearly more round than it's regular cousin, the oakiness is present and mellows flavors down while maintaining the smokiness of the peat. The liquid coats your mouth like an oil. Persistent notes of honey, smoke, almonds.
good smoke, but still a light flavor
Turf en zoetig, heerlijk! Je ruikt Sherry en proeft turf. Zeer smaakvolle whisky, heel mooi in balans. De nasmaak zoetig.
Süß und Frucht in der Nase, Rauch dezent zu riechen. Schön Rauch im Mund, toll die Eiche, süß und langer Abgang.
Sehr leckere Rauch-Holz-Süße-Kombinatin.
Heeft een lekkere peat
Sweetness from sherry and oaky wood notes from the quarter cask stand out, besides the familiar smoke and peat. Its peaty, smoky, slightly sweet and fruity with a fairly long and smooth finish - very enjoyable. But comparing the distilleries NAS offerings, I prefer the Quarter Cask over this, just slightly, and its largely due to difference in price point.
Strong and kind at the same time with 5/4 smokeyness, wood and spices at the palate, long finish with spices, but with honey and vanilla at the very end.
A very intense whisky. Very Laphroaig. I enjoyed this imensely.
Tar, as in old boathouses.
Smoky, smooth. Nice...
smooth flavor. medicinal, peat, vanilla. The sweetness of the sherry is also there, not overpowering but well balanced. Exellent whisky!!
toller Laphi...weich,komplex mit leichter Sherry-süsse
extremely smooth for a 48%. soft flavor, peat well balanced. subtle on nose. water brings out vanilla and flower smells. water adds bite!! oak!!
Gentle but peated with interesting taste and complexity
Last week I replaced my finished Quarter Cask with this unfiltered and uncoloured Triple Wood.
Before beeing botlled at 48%, it had triple maturation. Bourbon, quarter and oloroso casks.
Clear traces of all three can be found troughout te tasting.
Starting of the nosing with the bourbon part, a sweet vanilla and caramel at front. Followed by nutty wood and a floral touch. Orange, lemon and a rubbery salty peat, covered with tones of sherry complete this very allround nosing.
Sweet smoke on the taste. A lot sweeter, but less
tarry/peaty than other Laphroaig's I tasted.
The bourbon caramel and the oloroso sherry fruits are also present.
The spicy part comes from clove pepper and liquorice.
The medium/dry/spicy/peaty/sweet/sherry finish has a lot to offer and discover.
That said, this is a strange one.
It definitely has more layers and components than the QC but strangely enough it feels less balanced.
I brought this one to a tasting last saturday where it coincidently had its turn after the QC.
All 7 contributers gave there thumb's up for the 10€ cheaper brother of this TW.
After this one is finished, the QC gets it's spot on my shelf back again.
Still a descent 88 points.
On the nose I get notes from the bourbon and sherry barrels, in particular I get vanilla, raisin and apricot. The palate is a smoldering campfire with earthy flavor from the peat as well as fruity notes from the sherry casks. The finish is long and spicy with notes of cinnamon and smoke and a hint of vanilla at the very end. This is an excellent dram.
Good strong peat flavor
too much peat!
Süße Rosinen und cremige Aprikosen in Verbindung mit einer angenehmen Rauchigkeit
Cremige auf der Zunge. Torfrauch verbindet sich mit Vanille und Frucht und Sherrysüße. Mit etwas Wasser geht es in Richtung Zitrus und Gewürze.
süßer Karamell Geschmack bleibt zurück
TL/DR - nice smokey scotch with a fair amount of peat but enough sweetness to be very drinkable
Aroma - peat and wood
Taste - initial semi sweet sherry gives way to a mid flavor burn with a smokey finish reminiscent of a nice camp fire
Mouth feel - full bodied
Great peated whisky. Not too extreme yet very powerful. Great price as well.
This is my favorite of the Laphroaig line of scotches. It has the right amount of peat, smoke, and sweetness.
Not that smokey for a laphroaig single malt whisky. Smooth with a hint of woodyness mixed with sherry. Very good in my opinion!
The best peated whisky I have tasted so far. You can feel it has matured in ex-bourbon barrels. A notable progress from the basic 10 year old.
Like getting a punch in the face from a boxer who's wearing velvet boxing gloves. My favorite Laphroaig thus far.
peat, hints of red fruit, peach. A whiff of iodine. A wet townsquare, where the fish market took place until two hours ago.
heavy peat in a sherried wrapping. Salt, ash, vanilla, smoke and red fruit. The characteristic Laphroaig band aid signature, but this time in a velvety package.
creamy Chocolate, bitter coffee and a fading mix of gentle spices and sweet peatsmoke.
Smooth medicinal flavor with hints of vanilla oak all shrouded in smoke and peat. The finish is long and savory!
피트감 충만한 첫향과 다르게 동그랗게 말아들어가는 부드러운 맛이 너무 기분좋음 맛있다
