Laphroaig releasing “Triple Wood,” other limited editionsSeptember 29th, 2009
When I was with John Campbell, distillery manager of Laphroaig, on Friday night during our live Webcast, he told me about some new whiskies coming to the U.S. I tweeted about it on Saturday, but forgot to mention it to my blog followers.
Laphroaig Triple Wood will be going into general distribution in 2010. The Triple Wood, in general terms, is similar to a Laphroaig Quarter Cask finished off in sherry casks before being bottled.
In addition to the Triple Wood, he also informed me that they will be bottling some special limited edition Laphroaigs exclusively for the U.S. market. When I asked what it might be, he was somewhat elusive. However, he did say that they were short on older whiskies, so it would probably be something younger. Then, he mentioned that they distilled some whisky right at the turn of the Millennium, so perhaps we might see some sort of Millennium bottling?
