Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$780$1,049

Laphroaig Quarter Cask offers an irresistible doubling of flavour, due to the double maturation in two barrels made of American oak. Still-maturing whisky from their standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in our warehouse just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic shore.

This process represents Laphroaig breathing new life into a once-defunct tradition: the use of the smaller cask size, which ensures increased contact with the oak, creating a soft and velvety edge to complement Laphroaig’s distinctive peatiness.

    Tasting Notes By Dave Broom
    Nose: Maritime. Kipper-like, orange peel thrown on a barbecue, peat oil, tar, slightly sooty. Ever changing mix of dry, perfumed and sweet.
    Palate: Starts soft and fruity, then peat. Medicinal peatiness balanced by caramelised sweetness.
    Finish: Oatcake.
    Comment: Expansive and complex. The balance and complexity gives it the edge over the other Islay.

    Tasting Notes By Martine Nouet
    Nose: Rich heavy nose with a vague floral touch (lilac?). Chestnut purée, white chocolate. A huge whiff of smoke emerges. Develops on toffee.
    Palate: Smooth for the strength. Good grip. Water rounds it up. Creamy with an ashy dryness. Smoky.
    Finish: Toffeish with a spicy burst. Smoke lingers.
    Comment: Seems to hesitate between sweetness and dryness. Give it time to open, you will not regret it.

    Tasting Notes By John Campbell at Laphroaig Distillery
    Nose: Oily and buttery nose, with toffee, nuttiness, hickory, bicarbonate of soda, rum and raisin ice cream and zest.
    Palate: Big rush of sweetness, in fact it’s an explosion of sweetness, with fiery chilli heat, TCP, sweet cereals and a touch of cola syrup.
    Finish: Medium length, but becomes fruity, with custard and cigar smoke.
