Laphroaig Quarter Cask Single Malt Whisky

Laphroaig® Quarter Cask is twice aged to amplify deep peat and add a surprising sweetness. Contact with the wood of smaller quarter-sized casks makes it our most lively expression

Bigger barrels don’t mean better flavour. The proof is Laphroaig® Quarter Cask, inspired by the old tradition of transporting whisky on packhorses. Fortunately for said horses, it was stored in smaller quarter casks that carry flavour into your dram today. Their reduced size means the spirit has more contact with the wood, amplifying the natural flavours of whisky first matured in ex-Bourbon barrels. Hints of coconut, banana and vanilla complement our instantly recognisable heavy peat flavour, followed by a long, sweet and smoky finish. This quarter cask whisky is barrier filtered to retain all the character developed in our small but mighty barrels. Enjoy a soft and velvety single malt full of unexpected vivid notes, bigger flavour and aroma. ​


Sparking Gold


Smouldering Peat with aromas of Coconut and Banana.


Deep, Complex and Smoky. And a surprising gentle sweetness.


Really long, drying with appropriate smoke and spice.
