Laphroaig Quarter Cask is a Scotch whisky produced by the Laphroaig Distillery. It is a single malt whisky that has been aged in smaller, quarter-sized casks, which allows for more interaction between the whisky and the wood. This results in a richer, more intense flavour profile.
The whisky is made using locally sourced barley, which is malted and peated to give it a distinct smoky flavour. The Quarter Cask is then matured in ex-bourbon barrels for a period of 5-6 years before being transferred to smaller quarter casks for an additional 6-12 months.
The resulting whisky has a deep golden colour and a complex flavour profile that includes notes of smoke, peat, vanilla, and spice. It has a smooth, oily texture and a long, smoky finish that lingers on the palate.
NOSE: Powerful smoke, sweet malt, wet turf, coal. Develops chocolate & cinnamon.
PALATE: Laphroaig Quarter Cask is full-bodied, rich and mouth-coating. Delicious sweet malt and rich peat, woodsmoke. The coal appears mid-palate.
FINISH: Very long, sweet and smoky, with the coal lingering longest.
