700ML / 48.0% ABV.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask has been double matured in two barrels made of American oak. Firstly for 5 years in standard ex-bourbon barrels before finishing for seven months in quarter casks. The quarter casks are much smaller in size so allow more contact between the spirit and the oak, this gives a softer edge to the flavours and the impression of longer maturation.
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 with smoke and spice.
