This being my first official review, I will say this now. These are not meant to be mind blowing reviews. These are quick impressions of a whisky enthusiast with a short attention span. Ohh look, a bird….

That being said, I have never hidden the fact that I love pretty much anything from Laphroaig. However when I finally got my hands on the Laphroaig Triple Wood, that love just intensified. The extra maturation in the Sherry Casks really add a sweetness to this whisky that I just can’t get enough of.

Creamy, smokey goodness. Like adding a spoonful of sugar onto a beach Bonfire. If you aren’t into smokey whiskies, this is not the place for you to start. But if you love Islay Whisky and are looking for a whisky that fights back, then this is for you.

  1. I am always amazed at how much I love Laphroaig. It defies logic! I start to describe the flavors and those words do not seem to connect with something tasty, yet it is so utterly delicious! I cannot recall if I have had the Triple Wood, yet, but I was amazed at how good the Cask Strength 10 year old was! I think the 10 year old is great, and the Cask Strength is just that much better! Your review gives me a goal of trying the Triple Wood!

  2. I love your review…why, because it is straight forward and not all wordy and pretentious. I believe this is now on my next to order list….after I restock my Quarter Cask.

  3. A fantastic start to the website! It can get really fun once it picks up steam. A bit of work too, but worth it I’ve found. Some good thoughts on the Laphroaig. It’s taken me a long time to warm up to this distillery, as I tasted several early in my scotch journey and they didn’t make a good impression. With time, perspective, and an expanded palate, I’ve been able to appreciate them more for what they do well – and sometimes when it doesn’t always hit the mark for me. The recent expressions have struck a cord, especially this year’s Cairdeas, the 15 and the 18. Liquid gold.

    Looking forward to more of these to come in the future! Oh, should probably add you to our Links page now… 😀

      1. I’ve yet to try any offerings from Laphroaig or any peats for that matter. What would suggest as a good initial dram to walk into peats?

        1. I might suggest something like the Bowmore 15yr Darkest. It has enough peat to give you a feel for an Islay Scotch, but the sherry finish smooths it out nicely. Or you can go all in and start with the Laphroaig 10. It will be more smokey, but is a good starting point.

  4. Hi Man. Pretty damn smooth blog you got yourself. Looks really great, just like everything else you touch. Really dig your review too. Straight to the point no-nonsense reviews. Looking forward to following you and see where it all takes you. Sláinte and good luck.

  5. I recently bought the Laphroaig Tripple Wood after reading reviews and it certainly is different. Had several drams and it tasted young with a twist, so I will let it sit before returning to the bottle. If it does not change, I will not buy again
