Description

Laphroaig Quarter Cask takes its inspiration from the small casks often used for Scotch Whisky in the 19th century and frequently transported across the Glens by packhorse.

COLOUR: Full sparkling gold NOSE: Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas BODY: Full bodied PALATE: Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness FINISH: Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice

(Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Straw yellow color, bordering on goldenrod. Aroma is chockfull of tobacco ash, campfire, kippers, green pepper, new leather scents that delight from the first moment. Flavor is refined, but robust and loaded with toasted marshmallow and brunt orange peel tastes. A pleasing mouthful of Islay.The first nosings find clean, apple peel-like and peat-free scents; later inhalations find a more sea breeze like, mildly briny character. Palate entry is lean, earthy, moderately smoky and lemony; midpalate is oily with flavors of ash, peat, sweet malt and brine. Concludes sweet, peaty and cigarette ash-like, with a bite of green olive. — P.P. (4/1/2008) — 90-95
