Laphroaig Triple Wood Islay Single Malt

Similar to Laphroaig Quarter Cask, but also finished in oloroso sherry casks. Fruit and smoke: fleshy red berries, red licorice, toffee, ripe barley, coal tar, sun-baked seaweed, peat smoke, and a hint of coffee grounds. Tarry finish. I rated the Quarter Cask a 91, and I think this whisky is in the same ballpark. If you like sherry-influenced whiskies, then go for the Triple Wood. If not, then consider the Quarter Cask.

Ardbeg Uigeadail Cask Strength

In 2009, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail ‘World Whisky of the Year’ – in praise of its “utter silky brilliance” and “complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.” Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’) is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. It's non chill-filtered at high strength, which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth.

A cut above the standard 10 year old June 20, 2014
Reviewed by: Whiskycat

On the nose, salty, mineral, medicinal, iodine, strong peat smoke, coal fire, vanilla, slight fruit. On the palate, salt water and sweet spice at the beginning, develops into a strong, phenolic peat explosion with iodine, pepper, and smoked fish (perhaps salmon?). The addition of a touch of water tones down the peat and brings out more vanilla, nutmeg, slight citrus fruit, and a hint of floral. I prefer it without water. It finishes dry and crisp, with smoke that surrounds a mellow woodiness, and a peat/charcoal note with faint wisps of vanilla custard.This is very deep and complex for a…

Laphroaig QC March 04, 2014
Reviewed by: Hawkeye

Nose initially very similar to Laphroaig 10, but more assertive and fruitier (smoke/smoked pork shoulder, peat, brine, with sweetness in the background, getting hints of orange too)…reminds me of mixed berries, almost. Taste is smoky and sweet, malty, in a way similar to barbecue, with white pepper and some dried fruit in the background. Noticeably sweeter and almost more sherry-like, and less grainy than the 10. Caramel and a hint of coffee detected on the finish initially, but fades. Better w/o water.

This is outstanding stuff, possibly the best value in scotch there is.

Laphroaig Quarter Cask 96 proof July 29, 2013
Reviewed by: "Texacer" from

- Color: bronze golden - Nose: Caramel peat. Full bodied strong smacking floral nose. A vanilla campfire dosed in seawater and smoldering. Homemade bread - Taste: Coffee, Buttercream, Stout Beer, a Well done Steak, Brown Sugar, Smores, Pipe Smoke Vanilla. BBQ, Seaweed, Sweet/bitter Cacao, Burnt Toffee, Caramel Maple, Wood Oil, Coca Cola and Raisins. - Finish: long and terrific. Melts in your mouth, warmth. Why is it called Quarter Cask? Because it goes through the last 9 months of its maturation in a smaller cask. Smaller casks were used in the 1800s because they were easy to tote around stagecoaches…
