Laphroaig Quarter CaskA new expression from the Laphroaig distillery doesn`t happen very often so the Laphroaig Quarter Cask created quite a stir when released. Quarter casks were a popular way of storing and transporting whisky in the days of horseback but with mechanisation they became almost obsolete. Laphroaig decided to recreate some and in addition to maturation in oak quarter casks this whiskey hasn`t been chill filtered either and is stronger than their standard Scotch expressions. All in all the Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay single malt is a welcome addition and is surprisingly well priced too.
Nose: Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas.
Palate: Deep complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness.
Finish: Really long and dries appropriately.
