Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Single Malt Whisky 750ml

Single Malt Whisky from Islay, Scotland

Cellar/Tasting Notes
Laphroaig Quarter Cask is handcrafted to deliver a new expression of Laphroaig's powerful, smoky flavors with smoother, creamier and more complex notes. Laphroaig Quarter Cask is initially matured in American Oak bourbon barrels, and then is transferred into new, specially produced Quarter Casks for a final seven- to eight- month period. As a result, the maturing spirit receives 30% more contact with wood than other single malts aged in larger, more commonly used barrels. The additional wood influence imparts a very special character to the spirit. The result is a single malt with the unmistakable peat smoke that is so unique to Laphroaig, and a creamy, coconut-like nose with a soft sweetness, a hint of salt.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 90-95
"The first nosings find clean, apple peel-like and peat-free scents; later inhalations find a more sea breeze like, mildly briny character. Palate entry is lean, earthy, moderately smoky and lemony; midpalate is oily with flavors of ash, peat, sweet malt and brine. Concludes sweet, peaty and cigarette ash-like, with a bite of green olive."
