  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Memories of Forest Walking

    By Fairbairn on 26th Jan 20152015-01-26T20:00:00


    This was an overproof so I put a little water in it. It was on sale ($4 off) up here in Northwestern Ontario so I got the bottle for $65.95 and the 48 percentage seemed like a selling point over the r… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Sweet peaty monster

    By szila on 5th Jan 20152015-01-05T12:19:00


    NAS, Islay, 48% ABV Nose: Laphroaigian medicinal peat, smoke and salt, but also rather musty with old books, leather, cellar and damp wood. Lots of green notes, which complement the mustiness: pine, … read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - 2014 Edition - Build Up

    By markjedi1 on 4th Jan 20152015-01-04T08:59:00


    It has already been a few years since I last tasted the Laffie Quarter Cask, but thanks to one of my whisky buddies, I was able to secure a sample of the newest release. As the name suggest, the whisky… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - A Fresh Spicy Winner

    By cheeserandyburg on 26th Dec 20142014-12-26T10:56:00


    As part of holiday tradition, its time to break open a new single malt! This time around its Laphroaig QC. Tasted neat at 48% after 5mins of settling down. Nose - Immediately we get a big blast of fresh… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Smoked kippers with apple sauce

    By thewhiskydoctor on 7th Sep 20142014-09-07T19:42:00


    ­I had heard good things about this bottling, which is apparently around 8 years old to keep in the youthful phenolic peatiness while using smaller quarter casks to increase wood interaction and give more… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Quarter Notes Ring True

    By PMessinger on 24th Aug 20142014-08-24T22:38:00

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Muscled Peat

    By Pandemonium on 3rd May 20142014-05-03T10:19:00


    I decided to write this review for the sake of a discussion we had earlier this week about the Quarter Cask. Has the quality declined ever since the revamped packaging has been introduced? That being… read more

  • 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

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Vanilla peat balance

    By Nock on 24th Nov 20132013-11-24T03:31:00


    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
