The Quarter Cask is a strong, double cask matured, non-chill filtered malt from the iconic Islay distillery, Laphroaig. With a nose of burning peat embers and hints of coconut and bananas that is then followed by a palate that is deep and complex with smoky flavours. Still quite gentle with a hint of sweetness, this Single Malt has a long, spicy and smoky finish that seems to last an eternity.

As a daily tipple, this has to be the one. It really has that punch and smoke, especially during this rainy weather.
More smoky peat taste than the regular Laphroaig 10. It most enjoyable and it doesn't veer far from what the distillery delivers. Smooth complex and it delivers on the smoky peat and woody taste. Has a slight creamy taste. Smelling notes of smoky peat and oak. A good addition to ones Islay collection. No wonder they won many awards for this single malt.
