Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Nose: Plasters in a fireplace (that’s a good thing!) but there’s plenty of sweetness there too and even a slightly floral note.
Palate: Sweetness and oak lead into the medicinal peat punch and nutty toffee. Smoke throughout.
Finish: Long. Spicy, sweet and peaty.
Overall: The months spent in a quarter cask have been an unquestionable triumph, producing a truly superb sweet peaty malt that successfully belies its actual age.
