Laphroaig Quarter Cask

As the industry grew, they fell into disuse – bigger and more cost-effective barrels became the norm, for maturation and transportation.

However, as single malt lovers may know, the relationship between the barrels and the maturing spirit is critical. We noted that the small cask size gives up to 30% greater contact with the wood compared to some of the larger sizes used today, thus greatly intensifying the maturation process.

It was decided to recreate some of the Quarter Casks and the flavours they produce. We transferred some still maturing Laphroaig from our larger style barrels into the Quarter Casks. There then followed further periods of maturation in our original Dunnage Warehouse No1.

For greater authenticity we simply barrier filtered the whisky – the method used in those far off days – and bottled at a higher alcoholic strength.

The result surprised and delighted us. The additional oak influence creates a soft sweetness and velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig, comes bursting through. The finish is very long and alternates between the sweetness and the peat.

Très tourbeux, pour que nous profitons de l'enfumé. Grâce à Licorea, j'ai fini par le trouver, cela faisait longtemps que j'avais envie de l'acheter.

Torf und Holz, die beste Kombination. Ein Muss! Für diejenigen, die es geräuchert lieben.
