It is produced using three of the whisky’s signature finishing processes which has resulted in “the most complex flavoured Laphroaig we have ever done”, according to distillery manager, John Campbell. The triple cask maturation creates “the perfect marriage of peat, oak and sherry notes”.

Maxxium UK’s marketing controller for Scotch, Johna Penman, said: “It is the perfect time to launch Laphroaig Triple Wood, as malt whisky and in particular premium malt whisky, is growing ahead of the spirits market in the UK.

“We have a proven track record of malt innovation, with the launch of Laphroaig Quarter Cask in 2004 and are confident that this new expression will encourage interest and showcase the brand, the world’s number one Islay malt whisky, as a leader in the premium malt whisky market.”

Laphroaig Triple Wood will be available across the on- and off-trades at an RRP of £40-£50.
