Laphroaig Quarter Cask 700mlProduct Points:388Points
This expression offers an irresistible doubling?of flavour due to the double maturation in?two casks 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.
Full sparkling gold
Burning embers of peat in a crofter’s fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas.
Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice.
Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness.
