Triple matured for tripled ex-cite-ment. 

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet), rumor has it his royal princess Charles of Wales is a fan of the ‘L’ Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favorite Scotch.

Laphroaig Triple Wood is made in a similar fashion to their famous Quarter Cask. The main difference is that after they age it twice, in Bourbon barrels and then in small 19th-century style Quarter Casks, they add a third maturation, in large European oak, Oloroso Sherry casks. This final maturation gives the Triple Wood extra complexity and a slightly sweet edge, making for a significant distinction between the Quarter Cask. Triple Wood is a limited edition, originally supposed for the European Travel Retail only, but luckily for all Laphroaig (and peat) fans, they released a limited amount to the *general* public, too. Thank the Whisky Gods for that (or Laphroaig's marketing department). The Triple Wood has won numerous awards in the past two years, most notably the Gold medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
