LAPHROAIG QUARTER CASK

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 our 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.

On the nose the sensation is toffee and caramel, caused by the vanillas and tannins of the American oak, plus a dryness from the wood oil. The finish is long and alternates between this sweetness and smoke.

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR: Full sparkling gold

NOSE: Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas

BODY: Full bodied

PALATE: Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness

FINISH: Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice
