Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig Quarter Cask
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.51 points
- Bit more complicated than the 10 Y Laphroaig. A very spicy and fantastic whisky for a fair price.
Light medicinal, honey and pepper. It burns a bit in the nose after a few minutes in the glass and it gets more aggressive and promising.
Sweet start with a shot of pepper after. Peat and smoke. Full body and warm.
Leaves a very warm feeling in the throat with a hint of smoke and sweetness.
- Interesting Laphroaig. Pronounced maturation influence. Spices are clearly wood derived. Takes little water.
W/o water red fruit sweetness, mint, light eucalyptus (oil), bonfire smoke
W/ water less sweet, more spice, mint, "Vicks Vaporub"
W/o water sweet an d salt arrival, development from sweet, pepper, cinnamon candies, salty smoke finish
W/ water sweet liquorice arrival, development of warm sweet liquorice candy to warm peppery salmiak.
W/ water sweet, salmiak, peat-smoke
- Laphroaig Tasting Notes:
Colour: Full sparkling gold
Nose: Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, hints of coconut, gorse and heather
Body: Full bodied
Taste: Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness
Finish: Really long, drying appropriately with smoke and spice
- You can taste his young age. Well suited for Islay beginners on a budget.
Brittle, coastal flavors, phenolic smoke, slightly grassy, farm, coconut.
Medical smoke, hot spices like chili. Overall well balanced, but not exactly complex.
Short and smoky, quickly drying.
- Most recent shelf bottling. Gold pour. Nose is pleasantly smoke filled, lightly medicinal, banana cream, French flambé dessert. Seems less briny than the shelf 18 and 10, from memory. Mouth is a bit bitter, medicinal, and iodine upfront, then becomes peaty like an Islay scotch toward the middle and finish. That banana cream dessert shines in the finish too. Nice, very drinkable, approachable. It makes me want to investigate young, cask strength Laphroaigs.
