I have had the pleasure of 10, 18, QC,CS,a couple of indy bottlings, and not one sub excellent whisky. Glad to see the the track record is not broken with their Triple Wood.

I have had the bottle open for about 3 months now, and it is sitting at about 1/4 full. Typical "What's burning?" aromas, with a most welcome subdued sweetness. Much more subdued than their Quarter Cask, and I think this is where the differences between the two, very similar whiskies lie. A nice sweet baby ray's BBQ sauce and sweet pickles rush goes down my spine.

Smooth, thick and tongue coating. There is a pleasant carmel aftertaste that lingers. Sweet and salty on the back of my tongue. Warm salted cashews.

I do not recall what I paid for this, but not much more than the Quarter Cask. I would be happy with either one. Would not hesitate to purchase again.

I have been tempted to try this one for some time now, but the reviews are mixed so I just grab another QC or 10 instead. Seeing your favorable review @Onibubba makes me think I will grab one next time I have an opportunity. Cheers.

I too have been put off by poor reviews (ralfy being the main one) of the triple wood. Thanks for another perspective Onibubba. My favourite is the cask strength 10year old, a stunner!
