Laphroaig Quarter Cask New logo/new Whisky?
Bought a new Quartercask with the new logo.
Seems completely different from the last one, a new expression?
Blast of more peat, and more oak, and some older stuff.
Read that Laphroaig themselfe states that : Laphroaig Quarter Cask has no age statement since it contains a range of different aged spirit from 6 to 11 years old.
And then in Quarter Casks for 5-7 months?
My point, its new wrapping, seemingly a different taste. Not strange as whisky can change from batch to batch.
It's a very interesting Islay but I find it a bit harsh, and young/green on the palate.
Thanks for the info.
The fresh Oak can very well overpower a whisky, especially a peated one. If they used old whisky the peat would dissapear. Laphroaig cant have a whisky without Peat.
If you want to check how fresh oak can overpower a whisky, try a sample of the young Bunnahabhain Darach Ur. Like tasting and smelling fresh sawdust or wood, sweetness, vanilla etc
Very short finish, surely because of young age from 5-20 with probably mostly young whisky. I like it for what it is.
I find some of the same woody smell from Laphroaig, but this is way older than Bunnahabhains experiment.
If I could guess, they have made it both younger and older in the new version. But thats just a guess...
Read that all Laphroaig bottles is coming with a makeover.....
