Laphroaig Quarter Cask offers an irresistible doubling of flavor, due to the double
maturation in two barrels made of American oak. Still-maturing whisky from standard
ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in Laphroaig's
warehouse just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic shore.
Matured in smaller casks for increased contact with the oak, this whisky brings the classic smokiness of peat with hints of coconut and banana to the nose. Deep, complex, and smoky, yet surprising the
palate with a gentle sweetness, finishing long and drying appropriately with smoke and
spice. Laphroaig is one of only a few distilleries that still uses traditional malting floors,
drying and infusing its own malt with the thick blue smoke from old peat-fired kilns.
Enjoy this treasure neat, on the rocks, or with a touch of pure, clean water. Named for
the Gaelic "beautiful hollow by the broad bay," Laphroaig® is born in a 200-year-old
distillery on the coast of the island of Islay, with unique peat and water from the Kilbride
