  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Since you can not complain at all. Great drum combination that forms a slightly different Laphroaig. No high flyer, but top prize and: non-chill filtered.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Strong peat smoke and immediately wet, loamy soil and damp hay. Iodine and salt. Far less kelp / algae than you might be used to with Laphroaig. Fewer oceanic associations crowd up. Mentholisch fresh with traces of vanilla and honey.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The peat smoke takes a while to unfold on the tongue. Before that, mild-seasoned wild herbs are first found, which quickly become bitter. Salmiak sets over it sharply, but is softened by honey and vanilla after some time. Old oak boards are heavy on the tongue.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-long and oily, with the ashes of a peat fire, oak, salt and recurring sal ammoniac.

      Orange jam, smoke here like medicine, some mustiness in the background.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Very sweet, after the first contact there is hardly any smoke, the sweetness of cherries, toffee, dark chocolate, and finally coal, burnt fruit peel, bbq sauce on a well-done steak.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Interesting how, after a large piece of red meat with bbq sauce and booze, it is quite long.

  6. Malthead19 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    - a Laphroaig that smells rather atypically slightly smoky
    is
    - more fruit than the 10 years (probably comes from the
    sherry casks)
    - for about 40€ back then, it was fine, now I wouldn't
    buy more, more than 50€ does not correspond to the quality
    • Nose
      fruity, slightly smoky character, not at all a smoke bomb as expected, oak, orange, phenolic/medicinal rather subtle
    • Taste
      strong attack, very voluminous, stimulates salivation, in addition to the typical oak note and bourbon sweetness, a clear fruity note is noticeable, spiciness, strong (slightly burning development in the back palate)
    • Finish
      medium length finish ;
      medium to long fruity / smoky aftertaste
      , becoming dry

  16. DGV scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    There is a little bit of everything in it, but there is not much to catch on! It is easy to drink, tasty, but lacks density and depth.
    • Nose
      An empty first aid kit, a light train of stale berries, basturma, tobacco.
    • Taste
      Watery, simple. Light smoked meats, some berries, bitterness.
    • Finish
      Average duration. Duplicates taste.

  17. Don Cassi scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Typical Laphroaig smoke in the nose: medical-maritime, almost fishy, oysters come to mind. Behind it something sweet and vanilla. A slight filth on top of it.

    Soft, full and round in the mouth, fruity and sweet at the same time.

    The finish adds a good portion of bitterness to the oak, but retains the basic character of the previous impressions.
    Length: 7/10

    Nice round Laphi bottling: full, sweet and smoky, characteristic Islay. Compared to the Ardbeg An Oa (similar barrel composition) less oak, a little less sweet and less grassy (while the Ardbeg looks "green", the Laphroaig looks "yellow").

    Grade: 2+

  18. The_Osprey scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaig Triple Wood. Only old extremely basic notes from me to complement my scoring. Feb 2018 - Great whisky. 48% and tastes great. (3.6/86) Sep 2018 - nice, rounded, smoke and rubber. Pretty punchy, nice. (3.5/84)

  22. MichaelG scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    The taste of whisky is powerful, with a creamy texture. The initial burst of peaty notes contradicts the subtle peaty nuances of the scent a little. Then it is replaced by creamy notes of vanilla, fruit and sweet sherry. With water, the peat becomes more elegant, allowing for more complex citrus and spice tones to penetrate. The finish is very long, balanced, sweet, smooth, with hints of caramel..

  24. amahl scored this whisky 86 points Member Junior

    Nose: Typical medicinal Laphroaig smoke, spicy oak, minty, dry sherry notes and honey

    Palate: Lots of spicy oak and honey up front, medicinal smoke, minty, herbal, salty licorice, and some sherry notes (dried fruit) in the background. Full bodied.

    Finish: Medium long length, oak spice and pepper, slight astringency, tingling but pleasant

  25. Saftkenner scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nice standard bottling with good value for money, especially in terms of drinking strength.
    However, I prefer the stronger and edgier "Quarter Cask" and when it comes to additional fruit flavors, I prefer the Brodir or the PX-Cask.
    • Nose
      Maritime, phenolic and slightly medicinal smoke. Typical Laphroaig.
      Campfire, damp plank, old shoe sole, gauze bandage, vanilla, cherry, oak spice.
      The alcohol is once again very well integrated.
    • Taste
      Powerful start and not alcoholic spicy, despite the slightly peppery start.
      Smoke, orange, old rag, cloves, delicate cherry with vanilla and white oak spice.
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish. What remains is some smoke, together with a strong honey sweetness and a little bit of acidity.

  26. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Not without difficulties, this one. No the usual sherry notes but dryer. Also the distillate can't seem to play out its strengths as it does in the Quarter Cask. The least favorite of the standards LP range after the Select. Still decent quality of course, and latest 2020/2021 batches are very dark boosting this one to 87 p. But that's most probably going to change again sooner than later, I am afraid.

  27. hafssol scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    The triple wood passage is clearly recognizable in this one: the smoothness of Bourbon cask, the oaky notes of the quarter and finally the spicy fruity taste of the sherry cask.
    All of them are well balanced in this malt, rounded and powerful at the same time with its 48 abv.
    It might be defined like a more sherried version of the Quarter Cask, with pleasant and not overwhelming peatiness. Very easily enjoyable, yet enough complex, and not as heavily smoked as one could expect from Laphroaig.

    Coal, bitumen and nails are routine at Laphroaig. This time, it is counterbalanced by a very nice shade of gourmet sherry. Red fruits, pomegranate, blackberries, leather, apricots and raisins. Thick peat and tar dominate. Intense smoke, very fine, we have our heads in the fireplace. Woody influence. Medicinal touch. Very nice balance. In the background, a little vanilla side, these are the bourbon casks, but discreet. Warm, suave, oily on the palate, where the fruits blend with peat, blueberries and various berries, strawberry candy, then it's the finish, charcoal, ample, long, slightly caramelized. Pepper, coffee, melting chocolate. We scrape the asphalt.

    Great game between smoke and fruit
    • Nose
      At first it is medicinal smoky, then a sherry fruitiness develops. This is accompanied by a note of caramel, vanilla and a touch of maritime sea breeze.
    • Taste
      The first sip was all smoke and oak for me at first. With the second sip, a strong sweetness and sherry fruitiness came through.
    • Finish
      long, smoky, oak always present (sometimes dominant), but then comes the sherry, the smoke gives way to a dry sherry note (the sweet sherry is accompanied by a slight bitterness. Smoke, oak and sherry alternate steadily (very balanced, for nothing is superimposed on me extremely)

    The Sherry finish doesn’t add much to the quarter cask here. If anything, I find it more muddled than the QC. Still a decent Laphroaig, but not a repeat buy for me.

  42. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I really like the comparison - made by Ruben from Whiskynotes - of this to the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition. There's a similar sense of enhancing sweetness and tamping down peat smoke without losing the core identity of the distillate. This is still medicinal, peppery, salty, and complex, but it tones down the sheer herbal intensity of the Quarter Cask (to say nothing of the 10 CS), augmenting it with dry, yet fruity Oloroso notes. This definitely plays in a league with the aforementioned Lagavulin DE and Ardbeg Uigededail, yet it clocks in at roughly half the price.
    In short: I love it, and the only thing that keeps this bottle from reaching a higher mark is a certain (but slight) lack of depth / age.

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The typical Laphroaig smoke is dominant with a medicinal-fresh undertone from the beginning. In the first few minutes after pouring the alcohol (48%) stings a little in the nose, but becomes increasingly pleasant in the course of the tasting. Sweet-spicy notes quickly break through the thick smoke. Vanilla, caramel, delicate sherry notes, red fruits and lime abrasion mingle with malt, iodine, maritime aromas and spicy oak notes. The nose is powerful and multi-faceted.
    • Taste
      The Laphroaig starts first with a pleasant texture (creamy, oily) before countless my taste buds are confronted with sweet-fruity smoke and abundant oak cargo. A subtle sherry sweetness, dark fruits, orange peel, vanilla, caramel and echoes of dark forest honey follow. Immediately behind it appear slowly maritime notes, iodine, lime abrasion and clear wood notes to the fore. A delicate bitterness is already noticeable on the palate. The smoke (campfire & medical) is always present and emphasizes the intense taste.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, sweet-smoky and spicy. Also on the finish line dominates the intense smoke (campfire, slightly ashy and medically). A slight residual sweetness flashes in the short term and is quickly replaced by strong woody notes. Maritime notes and licorice let the Laphroaig slowly fade away. On the palate remains a delicate dryness and a noticeable bitterness.

    On the nose, peat in succession, then yellow fruits On the palate, it is nice the combination of lemon, peat, vanilla which form a conglomerate specific, not disgusting, then comes a certain viscosity in the mouth, we feel the perceptions of less acidic fruits, a little candied In the final, it's simple, but long, on the same aromas
    a simple dram, but which fulfills its office well, it misses a little old age to have access to a more interesting retro-olfaction.

    All very good flavors and tastes, but they are a bit 'side by side', not integrated, and young and stormy and not balanced and harmonious.
    • Nose
      First campfire. Then work quickly through a fruity sweetness, possibly apple mustache. Then comes the smoke and bacon again. Then it smells like mown grass. Finally red apple, maybe also pear. With hand warmth becomes greasier, on the edge also a little vanilliger pipe tobacco and leather.
    • Taste
      The alcohol tingles on the tip of the tongue, then smoke and grill ash. The whole is supported by a slight sweetness.
    • Finish
      The smoke stays in your mouth forever! In addition, neat salt and slightly nutty. Very, very delicious!

    Alone by the krafitgen 48% alcohol and the lack of cooling-Fitration he is far superior to the standard 10yo. I found the Quarter Cask very exciting, with the Triple-Wood, there is a sherry note on top. Many of them are too much of a good thing and they miss the strong phenolic smoke, but I find this station wagon extremely successful and the two bottles are some of the few NAS whiskys their place in my collection - especially because the price is right!
    • Nose
      Dominant smoke, but not nearly as strong as the 10yo, and also strong oak flavors, after some time in the glass then brown, malty cane sugar, bourbon vanilla bean, caramel, cherries, dark fruits, the otherwise typical sea flavors are minimal perceivable
    • Taste
      Immediately dull, strong oak - you have the barrel staves downright in sight, smoke and a Sherry sweetness that waters your mouth - an exciting combination of tart oak and fruit sweetness underlaid with smoky spices, vanilla, caramel,
    • Finish
      due to the smoke and the oak, the spicey sweetness lingers longer

    If you expect a lot of sherry and bourbon sweetness from the Triple Wood, you are on the wrong track. There is a lot of smoke on the way, and the barrels have a lot of tannins - nothing for whimpering. Great Laphroaig with bums.
    • Nose
      medically fresh, slightly pungent, bitter vegetable, freshly cut grass, lime skin ... then charcoal, soot ... behind it a light caramel sweetness
    • Taste
      the smoke comes back vegetable-bitter (almost burnt plastic, bitter tablets) ... keeps in the balance with sweetness, honey, caramel ... then licorice, Kamillan - wooden board.
    • Finish
      rather long, smoky-dry-bitter, some licorice

    Really great Whisky! A lot of smoke embedded in hints of wood - with a tarty sweet finish. A beauty! Great value!

    Not so much sherry as intended but therefore a lot of wood.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
    • Nose
      Sweet wood smoke, vanilla, eucalyptus, iodine, butterscotch. 
    • Taste
      Sweet wood smoke, vanilla, liquoric, a sweet orange touch from the sherry, butterscotch.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Smoke, wood, liquoric.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/laphroaig-an-cuan-mor-triple-wood-und-10yo-cask-strength-batch-6-35597/ Color: corn yellow
    Nose: With a smoky start, peaty and spicy (although still reserved, but more intense than the An Cuan Mòr). Light "farmy notes", with coal, soot and tar, as well as maritime compounds with diluted lime juice.
    Taste: Heavy and creamy mouthfeel with peaty, sweet malt, a sugar-honey combination, lots of coal dust, some iodine and caramel. Dry, maritime citrus fruit, which is enriched to the finish by full peat aroma and harsh wood engraving.
    Finish: Relatively long - peat and smoke are at the very front of the finish. A malty and austere character that is adversely affected by dry notes of oak and licorice. Towards the end, a smoky-peaty licorice taste is left behind on the tongue.
    86 points (nose: 86 / taste: 87 / finish: 84)
