Review: Laphroaig Quarter Cask

This was my third review way back in 2013. it’s an oldie but a goodie and the Quarter Cask is still a bottle I have on the shelf at all times! (helps that it’s one of the few decent values at the LCBO too)

Laphroaig Quarter Cask – 48% ABV

  • Appearance: light gold
  • Nose: heavy peat, vanilla, strong medicinal alcohol burn in the sinuses
  • Taste: iodine, peat, smoke, caramel, salt, burnt wood. a few drops of water bring out some spices, and softer floral notes.
  • finish: long and lasting smoke, warming in the throat, seafood. smoke is subdued in the finish with water; woody flavours come through more. fruity notes in the long run.

love this one. it’s bold and strong, and makes no apologies.

Rating: 92/100
