  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - I was wrong...

    By Georgy on 5th Oct 20162016-10-05T20:57:00


    So, here's an update on the same bottle of Laphroaig CQ that at first made a positive impression on me, but then slipped into utter mediocrity. So much so that I just couldn't help writing a second, n… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - On second thought...

    By Georgy on 23rd Sep 20162016-09-23T16:10:00


    I've reviewed this whisky a few days ago after having a few drams and I gave it a pretty decent mark for what it was. But I have to say that as time goes by this whisky becomes flatter and flatter. After… read more

  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask - Not much peat, yet sweet, yet sweet

    By Georgy on 21st Sep 20162016-09-21T22:25:00


    NOSE: a lovely combination of mazut with sweet caramel notes. Slightly herbal as well (think parsley). Surprisingly, there's some warm spices which I usually pick out in sherried whiskies: cinnamon and… read more

  • 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 distillery (the name means "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay") was established in 1815, by Alex and Donald Johnston. It was sold to Long John International in the 1960ies and subsequently… 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
