Today I’m featuring the Laphroaig Triple Wood Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Now, this eLetter is sort of a pre-sale. I say “sort of” because I have gotten some of my allocated cases, but not all of them. That means some people will get their orders a little earlier than others, but only by a few days.
So, the Laphroaig Triple Wood has been getting some pretty good press. John Hansell from the Malt Advocate gave it 90pts and a guest reviewer gave it 94pts. Good scores, but this whisky isn’t without controversy. Some people are saying it’s very similar to the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. I’ve had both. I may not be an expert, but I can honestly tell you that the whiskies are noticeably different. Are they similar? Sure, but all Laphroaig’s are going to have a similar taste profile. Like Kris Comstock from Buffalo Trace once said to me when I was in the process of selecting a personalized barrel, “You won’t find a barrel of Buffalo Trace that’s going to taste like George T. Stagg!” Sound advice.
While supplies last, the Triple Wood will be on sale for $59.99/bottle, which is the same cost as the Quarter Cask. It’s worth picking up the Triple Wood. And just to compare, pick up a bottle of the Quarter Cask as a comparison. Just let me know your opinion.
