Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky


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.
