Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig Quarter Cask
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points
- At the beginning a certain alcoholic note. After 6-12 months, the oxidation of the QC got better and better. Unfortunately, he is now all, but there will certainly be a purchase. Top PLV!
At first a smoke without concession. At aeration: rum-raisin ice cream, vanilla ice cream. Notes of orange blossom, lavender, violet, rose water, oil, honey and fir sap.
An explosion in the mouth. Literally: imagine a sweet sphere that explodes in peat!
Smoke. Empty glass: pine needles pine mile.
- It's not like master-beats like the basic 10y but still great 90/100.
Those who know the basic 10th performance will be surprised how these barrels influence, the whisky is softer, it's not so brutal, I think it's more accessible to those who disinfect means do not need it anymore. You would not appreciate your iodine and peat, but it is a sweet, pleasant veil, everything smoothed and delicate.
Rich in taste, peat-smoky tones, again slightly softened with sweetness.
The flavor is not as endless as in the basic fulfillment, you will not feel it anymore kind of day in the morning, but do not worry, you will consume it.
- Expansive and complex.
Rich heavy nose with a vague floral touch
Smooth for the strength. Creamy with an ashy dryness. Smoky.
Toffeish with a spicy burst. Smoke lingers.
- My score is from a bottle (0.7) from 2006 (COde: M011795)
- Colour: light gold.
Nose: Peat, but not too overwhelming, creamy and sweetyish.
Taste: neat: firm body, rich, salty, but not too, lightly vanilla and creamy - with water: smoky peat, velvety, sweetyish and creamy, less salty and nutty.
Finish: very long and dry - with water: still long and little sweeter, fruity.
Comments: for me, this is an excellent whisky and even more enjoyable with three drops of water, imho!!
- In this price range without question one of the best Laphroaig's.
a beautiful, mild-smoky note rises to the nose, very maritime-fresh, light citrus influences and easily recognizable traces of banana and coconut.
How valuable are the 48%! A nice, strong drink. Even with water can be handled easily. More smoke than in the nose and a pleasant sweetness make this Laphi a good malt on the palate.
Dry smoke and spice flavors.
- It seems to me the 2008 batch is different from the 2007. Have to do some cross checking.
Undiluted, very strong peat, some sulphur and coffee. With a few drops of water also tar and buckling show up. The wood is present in the form of vanilla pudding, maybe with some cream as 'creme Suise'. A touch of ashes too. Good!
Bold peat in the form of charcoal, grilled beef and smoke. Some pencil fragrants from the wood, nice. Also quite some salt and a nuttish feeling.
Long finish which is quite peppery and salty. Dry and full of smoke, but no monster. The next day the glas still smells peaty.
