Laphroaig Four Oak 1L

First released for the Travel Retail market, Laphroaig Four Oak features a marriage of whisky matured in a quartet of casks, namely ex-bourbon barrels, quarter casks, virgin American oak barrels and European oak hogsheads. Somewhat following on the theme from their popular Triple Wood expression...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Roasted coffee beans, almond pastries, sawdust and medicinal peat.

Palate An intense waft of smoke as it opens, with earthy vanilla pod and subtle cookie dough following it up.

Finish Drying, quite spicy and long.

Reviews for Laphroaig Four Oak 1L
Disappointed
The 10 years is 10x better. The only feeling of this one is smoked, it is not balanced.

Disappointed :(
After buying the 10 year one and loving it I expected to find an even better whisky in this, given the price. Sadly I have to agree with others: less flavour, low complexity, taste doesn't linger. Don't waste your money.

Worse Lafroig whisky!!!
Very low taste level, very dry with the presence of low smoke level. I prefer Ledaig 10. I will never buy this whiskey again!!!

Good single malt for your collection.
Not a bad drop, smooth and peaty with a huge whiff of smoke that is very pleasant. It is not like the Laphroaig 10 year old which has been one of my favourites for many years , but I was happily surprised how enjoyable it was. I would be happy to kick back and sip on this.

I would buy it again at the airport.

Don't bother wasting your money.
The 10 Year Old or even the Quarter Cask is better than this for 2/3rds of the price. Don't waste your money - even if it is a litre.

Worth trying
I got this whisky from Delhi duty free and regret why I have purchased only single bottle.
As mentioned in previous review one need to take it slow. Smokey and tasty...worth trying...

It will be worth it if you take it slow.
Simply the best single malt ever made. For the immature, it probably tastes like the first time they tried wine and expected it to taste like grape juice. To the educated, this is a sweet, mellow, rich, and complex taste extravagance. Each breath brings a new, flavor that goes on forever. You can literally enjoy the lasting tastes of a sip of Laphroaig Four Oak for longer than you can enjoy an entire bottle of some other whiskey's. If you simply want to get drunk, get a bottle of something else if you want to enjoy, get this, but take it slow, it's worth it.

deeply disappointing
Deeply disappointing. Where the four casks appears is none to be taste. Feels like drinking cheap immature whisky out of a dirty ashtray. No complexity at all, just strong and persistent nose notes of smoke. There's lots of better single malt options for a cheaper price.
