Laphroaig Quarter Cask

The extra-maturation of ex-bourbon-matured whisky in small quarter casks and the 48% ABV make this Laphroaig the perfect match of peat and oak and a popular alternative to the 10-year-old standard bottling.

Color: quite bright… I like bright Whiskies (that means, that there isn't too much additional coloring added). Golden Amber
Nose: vanilla, prunes, whipped cream, smoke, cumin, star anise, white chocolate. Very rich for just ONE cask! Not so smoked as the 10 years old, nor so rich as the Select. 21,5
Palate: peat smoke, caramel, strong wood flavor (like a good quality cask). Raisins, black tea, a bit sweet, grapefruit peel, burned bacon 22
Finish: cocoa, leather, wood, prunes, burned something ;-) , vanilla, ripe pear, apple seeds. Bitter, but pleasant. Medium long and intense 21
Balance: Tasty, intensive Whisky. Un-chill filtered, which means a good finish… but the strongest part of this Malt is the taste. It seems to be not very much additional caramel in it. For the peat smoke lovers, it's Superb! A lot of smoke. Intense, great! 23
Overall: 87,5

...............Deutsch...............
Farbe: ziemlich hell ... Ich mag helle Whiskys (das bedeutet: nicht zu viel zusätzliche Farbstoffe). Golden Amber
Nase: Vanille, Pflaumen, Schlagsahne, Rauch, Kümmel, Sternanis, weiße Schokolade. Sehr reich für nur ein Fass! Nicht so geraucht wie der 10 Jahre alt, aber auch nicht so reich wie der Select. 21,5
Körper: Torfrauch, Karamell, kräftiger Holzgeschmack (ein guter Faß). Rosinen, schwarzer Tee, ein bisschen süß, Grapefruitschale, verbranntes Speck 22
Finish: Kakao, Leder, Holz, Pflaumen, verbranntes Irgendwas ;-), Vanille, reife Birne, Apfelsamen. Bitter, aber angenehm. Mittellang und intensiv 21
Balance: Geschmackvoller, intensiver Whisky. Nicht kalt gefiltert, was ein gutes Finish bedeutet ... aber die stärkste Seite dieses Maltes ist der Geschmack. Es sieht so aus, dass da nicht ganz viel zusätzliches Karamell drin ist. Für die Torfrauchliebhaber ist er großartig! Viel Rauch. Intensiv, Super! 23
Insgesamt: 87,5
