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.
