Laphroaig Triple Wood

December 28, 2008

laphroaig_triple_woodwvAs previously said the Laphroaig Triple Wood would make it’s entry on the Duty-Free market this autum/winter. 200 bottles is rumored to be sold to Friends of Laphroaig before the official release, but I haven’t seen them materialize yet.

The 1-litre Duty-Free edition (48% abv.) will cost €65 (£61.22), which I personally find a bit steep for a sherry-finished edition of the Quarter Cask. The QC is 399 NOK (£38.37) and a 60% premium for a cask finish is just a tad over the top. Glenmo’s Sherry-finish carry a 20-25% premium.

Will need to try it before I buy it at that price.

ardmore_25wvBtw. Beam Global’s previously stated release of Ardmore 25yo was showcased in October and should be popping up in major Duty Free-outlets – at a whooping €249 (£234.50), almost twice the price of Highland Park 25yo in Norway.

A new edition of the peaty Speyside malt Ardmore is on it’s way. According to unnamed sources at Beam Global (via) a 30yo bottling will be out and about later til year, in time for the Christmas shopping season. Hopefully it’ll be reasonable priced (£100-£125 range) , unlike some of the 30 year olds on the market.
