Laphroaig Triple Wood is aged in three different types of cask, including American oak ex-Bourbon barrels. We then pick and choose the most suitable spirits from these barrels, ranging in age. These are blended and transferred into small 19th Century Quarter Casks for a second maturation. This gives them more contact with the wood, imparting notes of spice and cedar.
Finally, the spirit is moved into our specially selected large European oak Oloroso sherry casks for that final touch of sherry sweetness. This whisky matures and develops slowly during this final stage, lending it a complex and full-bodied flavor.
