Laphroaig Quarter Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
 

Laphroaig Quarter Cask marks a return to the traditional 'quarter cask' whisky-making practice. Fit with a balanced complexity, the Quarter Cask has become known as one of the finest Scottish Whiskies in the world, with thanks to ageing methods and processes that make this offering so unique. The whisky is firstly matured in first-fill American ex-bourbon casks, before being transferred into the 'quarter cask,' as used in the 19th Century.

In the world of single malts, Laphroaig Quarter Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky is undeniably in a class of its own. Rated 95 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, this Laphroaig offering is irrefutably premium Scotch Whisky.

  • 96 Points - Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2018  "A great distillery back to its awesome, if a little sweet, self. Layer upon layer of sexed-up peatiness."

Tasting Note: Light golden. A peat aroma with sweet malt and citrus, and a creamy, coconut-like dimension. Pleasingly long with a slightly dry quality and spice and smoke elements. 

Laphroaig Triple Wood Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml

Laphroaig Triple Wood single malt whisky is and expression of Laphroaig's famous whiskies, from the remote island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland.  It has enjoyed a triple maturation in 3 types of cask; the first maturation is in American oak, ex-bourbon barrels then transfer into small 19th century style Quarter Casks for a second maturation, and final maturation is in specially selected, large European oak, Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a wonderfully rich and powerful Islay single malt. Laphroaig Triple Wood is a non-chill filtered whisky and may go cloudy when water is added in the glass. This is perfectly normal for a non-chill filtered whisky.
 
  • 86 Points - Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2017 - "A pleasing and formidable dram, an attractive whisky in many ways."
  • Silver Medal - International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2017
  • Silver Outstanding Medal - International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2017
  • Gold Medal - International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2016

Tasting Note: The aromas are sweet with a gentle mixture of raisins and creamy apricots, with a trace of dry peat smoke at the back. On the palate are creamier flavours of vanilla and fruit with a suggestion of sherry. With a touch of water, the peat is gentled.
