Description

In the 19th century, Scotch whisky was frequently transported across the Glens in quarter casks.  Laphroaig today breathes new life into the tradition.  Still-maturing whisky from standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in the warehouse just a stone's throw from the Atlantic shore.  This increased oak contact creates a soft and velvety edge to compliment Laphroaig's distinctive peatiness.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery:  Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas
Taste
Distillery:  Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness
Finish
Distillery:  Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice
