Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig Quarter Cask

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.83 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A nice example of a very successful NAS whisky. The 48% do very well with the 16yo and 18yo - and even more so with a Laphroaig that has matured for less than 10 years. A very harmonious whisky, of which you can actually always have an open bottle in the bar cabinet - not least as a friend of Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Classic Laphroaig nose with intense, phenolic peat, Hansaplast, warm tar, seaweed and a touch of brackish water. Pepper, rosemary and thyme, juniper berries, honey and vanilla, cookie dough. Warm caramel mass, toffee, milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Spicy and peaty start, the 48% is just right. Comfortable warmth spreads quickly, the peat smoke spreads throughout the mouth. In addition, smoked apricot pieces and a few mandarins appear. Vanilla, honey, cocoa powder, coffee beans. Nori leaves, pepper, nutmeg, a touch of rosemary. The mouthfeel becomes velvety over time.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long and slightly dry finish. As expected, the smoke persists for a long time, but it leaves enough space for apricot notes as well as vanilla, honey and chocolate to deliver a very well-rounded and harmonious finish.

    While nice, the nose isn’t terribly compelling, the taste takes it up a notch, and the finish just really sends it all home.
    • Nose

      Medicinal, maritime smoke. Bit of dunnage. Chemical quality to the ethanol. The vaguest hint of tropical fruit.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Earthy, bitter, some smoke. The smoke grows as it sits on the tongue.
    • Finish

      Big smoke, huge. Like the mistake that retail worker made. Takes on an earthy, charred meat quality. This wowed me. Medium.

      Some peat and smoke as you can expect from Laphroaig. But due to the QC there are many sweet notes like apples and vanilla. There is also a note of soft ice cream present. Some medicinal notes like an first aid kit and iodine. At the end nuts and oak.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Peat and cigar smoke. Vanilla ice cream complemented by fruits like apples and sweet melon. A note of marzipan on the background and there is a soft pepper. Some oak too.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long. Cigar smoke keeps lingering on with a note of peat. The melon sticks for a bit with some toffees.
