  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Brown Sugar

    By AdamJackson on 26th Jan 20142014-01-26T19:39:00

    Pale orange. Cough syrup and smoke stack and brown sugar on the nose. Taste is pretty intense. It jumps out with chalky dry enamel stripping booze with a lot of moss and earthy sweet finish. Tastes like… read more

    This is from a bottle I bought and opened at the end of March in 2011. I have tasted it with notes on six occasions (92, 89, 89, 88, 89, 85). I really think Laphroaig and Ardbeg are best - for me - when… read more

    I've spotted a few varied reviews on QC and thought I would throw my hat in the ring as well. I love this Whisky in a familial way. It's like your mothers younger brother, the cool Uncle who drives fast… read more

    Since I’ve been reviewing all the popular drams lately, I would be remiss to not include the ol’ QC. It’s a classic by any standard, and shame on me for taking so long to get around to it. It’s not the… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Have some more oak with your oak

    Nose: Oak, dried fruit essence, and a pleasing nuttiness. The nose is quite enjoyable on this scotch. Palate: bitter oak dominates with some hot chillis, while the background is occupied by toasted… read more

    This particular bottling is aged 5 years in the usual ex-bourbon barrels then moved to quarter casks for a short stay of 7 months. This younger bottling is bottled at 48% which is slightly higher than the… read more

    I am by no means a connoisseur, so don't expect me to know what I'm talking about, but Laphroiag Quarter Cask is a bottle of burning wood and gunpowder. The reactions of my family when I poured them some… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - No Laphing Matter

    By vanPelt on 10th May 20132013-05-10T19:24:00

    Nose: You first notice the peat-imparted leather, which manages to be deliciously inviting combined with a well-rounded sweetness (and NaCl/I2): like wakame salad, complete with sesame seeds. Further … read more

    I am currently finishing my 3rd bottle of this glorious series of Laphroaig distillate. Many before have already explained the origin and defintion behind the "quarter cask" entitlement, which is quite… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Smoky, peaty, balanced, and smooth

    By bvburnes on 10th Mar 20132013-03-10T01:01:00

    On the nose, there was a significant smokiness as well as the classic band-aid aroma. In spite of this powerful nose, the drink did not evoke as much of the briney seaside sense of place as one might … read more
