  • 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


    Slow thick smoke filled arrival develops a long slow iodine/earthy rich smooth smoky vegetable finish.

  • 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

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - My favourite uncle

    By ozmalt on 5th Nov 20132013-11-05T05:59:00


    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

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Silky sweet peat...

    By hunggar on 17th Oct 20132013-10-17T17:57:00


    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

    By FormerlyRigmorole on 13th Aug 20132013-08-13T17:22:00


    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

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Ah finally more Laphroaig!

    By GotOak91 on 13th Aug 20132013-08-13T02:28:00


    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

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Like drinking a pirate ship, but be

    By Lasherman on 16th May 20132013-05-16T21:32:00


    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
