Laphroaig Quarter Cask

Released in 2004, this bottling was aged for around five years before being finished in a quarter cask for several months, the size of the cask is quite small, thus does not require such a long maturation. This remains a truly great achievement from Laphroaig.

Tasting Note by us with John Campbell at Laphroaig Distillery

Nose Oily and buttery nose, with toffee, nuttiness, hickory, bicarbonate of soda, rum and raisin ice cream and zest.

Palate Big rush of sweetness, in fact it’s an explosion of sweetness, with fiery chilli heat, TCP, sweet cereals and a touch of cola syrup.

Finish Medium-length, but becomes fruity, with custard and cigar smoke.

Reviews for Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Mix 'em that sorts it!
Love Laphroaig, drink no other, but mix 10 and quarter cask, which for me, is my preferred tipple!

A genuine alternative to the ten year old
The choice between this and the 10 is really a difference in what kind of seasoning you prefer.
The 10 is more meaty. It has more body.
The QC is more spicy and brash.
Get the Lore and you have the best of both worlds.
I wanted to try the 18 but my preferred specialty whisky shop told me that it was in very short supply in my city and tried to charge me £250 for a bottle.

Wonderful nectar!
We clearly differ and this is good, thank goodness I'm with the lucky ones who find this SUBLIME!

Accidentally bought this instead of the 10….no big deal
Yes I did mean to buy the 10 but got Quarter Cask instead. Having since had the 10 I think I prefer this. The nose is roast pork, salty crackling and amazing I want to smell this all the time.

Firework!
This Laphroaig Quarter Cask is a firework in a glass! I adore the fizz that I get on the palate, slipping down swiftly thereafter.

A very fine Islay malt.
As a Friend of the distillery and having visited the place and partaken in some tasting sessions that included whisky of 30 years old, I declare this to be my personal favourite Laphroaig of all, I was lucky enough to win the right to buy one of the very first bottlings, which I drank rather than sell on the internet, highly recommend this as a very fine peated malt of reasonable value. I'm not usually a fan of this messing around with barrels malarkey, nor do I usually like young no age statement whisky, but this is the exception.

Seaside Savory Sojourn
An amazing Islay malt with silky sweet peat, brine, honey and chocolate notes that coat the tongue with a spice and citrus finish. More abv…yes please!!!!

Worth a try as an alternative to the 10 year old.
Definitely get the fuller flavour from the smaller cask used in maturation. Punchy on the palate with an expected explosion of peat. Very medicinal on the finish.

A bit good
I'm often in the mood for sweet n smokey, and this delivers. The extra abv is nice, takes it past the standard 10, for me. Nom nom.
