Laphroaig Quarter Cask



Laphroaig Quarter Cask takes its inspiration from the small casks often used for Scotch whisky in the 19th century. The small casks give up to 30% more wood contact intensifying the maturation process and somewhat taming the sea air. This whisky is barrier filtered and bottled at a higher strength.

Color:  Pale Amber

Nose:  Peat, oak and apricots.

Body: Full and smooth.

Palate: Moderate peatiness with the usual Laphroaig smokiness. Heather and orange sweetness emerge as the peat and smoke diminish.

Finish: More of a herbal zestiness than a medicinal taste. Ever present peat in that long mellow peppery and smoky finish.

ABV:  48%
