This Islay single malt, the Quarter Cask from the Laphroaig distillery represents a perfect marriage of peat and oak. The use of the small quarter casks gives the whisky plenty of opportunity to have contact with the wood and a strong oaky flavour is imparted Nose: Powerful smoke, sweet malt, wet turf, coal. Develops chocolate & cinnamon. Palate: Full-bodied, rich and mouth-coating. Delicious sweet gristy malt and rich peat, woodsmoke. The coal appears mid-palate. Finish: Very long, sweet and smoky, with the coal lingering longest.
