Laphroaig Four Oak 1L

Laphroaig Four Oak 1L Bottling Note

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.

Laphroaig Four Oak 1L Reviews

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.

Nice taste and aroma

Very good

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.

A Nice Dram

Picked it up at Frankfurt airport duty free, as I hadn't seen it before. I really like it. I enjoy the oak bite, vanilla tones, with the distinctive Laphroaig malt and smoke. The trend towards bourbon, sherry and sweet barrels loses me. I like oak. This brings it all into balance. I've also got the Laphroaig Select and Quarter Cask, and I think a slight preference for Four Oak.

Marmite whisky. Love it or hate it.

This is a marmite whisky. I'm not Laphroaig's biggest fan but this is smooth stuff. This has the elements of Laphroaig I remember. Tried The Lore and Quarter Cask recently and this is not quite as good as those two (I preferred the 1/4 cask to Lore myself). The marketing team probably had more say in it's outcome than I'd like but it's still pretty good. Tasted it alongside Ledaig 10 and Bowmore 15. Held it's own but prefer the other two, as they have more body than this. Care has gone into this, even if "Four Oaks" was decided by committee.

Я счастлив,что отведал это произведение.

Превосходный ненавязчивый очень питкий лафроиг! Просто превосходный и довольно-таки сложный как и нос,так и вкус.

Smooth yet intense. Loved it!

I'm an aficionado by no means but definitely have come to love Islay whiskies in general. I think the tasting note from Masters of Malt is accurate, and this drink makes for a perfectly good and rich taste experience. Certainly both spicy and peaty enough, although I'm not speaking from a lot of experience with other Laphroaig malts! A drop of water does it no harm in my opinion.

Suits me just fine!

Possibly confusing to some people’s palates with all this wood in the mix, but I found the flavors interesting and enjoyable.
Toffee sweetness on the nose, along with rusty nail and young leather. Palate is husky (as in grain husks), with vanilla notes and the typical medicinal Laphroaig flavors. Long, spicy (but smooth) finish, with lingering smoke.

Excellent single malt

To my palate this is an excellent single malt. I could smell the smoke of an Islay malt though I am not an aficionado. I missed the 'roasted coffee' part of it, though. And yes - no water.
