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 glasses make it clear this is not a bottle for someone not used to the taste of whisk(e)y. In fact, after tasting this, my dad fetched a plastic jug of his moonshine from his garage to show us all what "real" booze should taste like. Thankfully, no one agreed his was any better, but still, I was the only one who managed to enjoy my glass of Quarter Cask.

This was the most expensive scotch I've ever had, and once it is gone I'll have to live with the realization that everything I've been drinking up until now has actually been mediocre at best. Laphroaig has ruined all other drinks for me; drink with caution.

Your dad's plastic jug of moonshine...LOL:) I've also just recently been acquainted with this whisky, and like you I came to appreciated it rather quickly. How something can be so "earthy" and yet deliciously rich at the same time just blows my mind. Also, in the 90's in my book. Thanks for your review!

At a recent tasting amongst friends, I thought this was one of the 'stars' of the night. My friends didn't care for it...or any of the other smokey and peaty offerings for that matter. I was the lone vanguard for smoke and peat and this one made my night. I promptly went out and added a bottle of this to my own collection upon returning home.
