This Islay malt takes its inspiration from the casks often used for Scotch whisky in the 19th century. The small cask size gives the malt greater contact with the wood, creating a soft sweetness and velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through.
The most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies. Distilled on the remote island of Islay off the West Coast of Scotland. Using small quarter casks from a bygone era to create the perfect marriage of peat and oak Laphroaig today breathes new life into the tradition. Still-maturing whisky from our standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in our warehouse just a stone's throw the Atlantic shore. This increased oak contact creates a soft and velvety edge to compliment Laphroaig's distinctive peatiness. The finish is long and alternates between this sweetness and smoke.

    Preparation and Usage

    Please note that any cloudiness when mixed with water is normal for a whisky that hasn't been chill-filtered, but instead barrier filtered only - the method used when the quarter cask was king.
