Laphroaig

Laphroaig Quarter Cask

Single malt (48%)

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.
