It is named after the smaller casks, or "quarter casks," in which it is matured. The whisky is heavily peated, with a phenol content of around 40 parts per million, which gives it a smoky, earthy flavor. It is aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and quarter casks, which provides it with a distinctive taste and texture. The whisky is bottled at a strength of 48% ABV. Laphroaig Quarter Cask has won numerous awards, including the San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold Medal in 2014 and the International Wine & Spirit Competition Gold Medal in 2018.

About the distillery

Distillery

Laphroaig

The Laphroaig distillery is located on the island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland. It was founded in 1815 and is known for producing heavily peated single malt whiskies that are full of smoky, briny flavors. The distillery sources its water from the Kilbride Stream and uses locally sourced peat to dry its malted barley. Laphroaig has a long-standing reputation for producing bold and complex whiskies, which are aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. An interesting fact about Laphroaig is that it holds a Royal Warrant from HRH Prince Charles, who is a fan of the distillery's whisky.
