Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Malt

"Toffeed nuts, peat, spice, and creamy vanilla aromas. a round supple entry leads to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body of honeyed toast, golden raisins, anise and other brown spices. Finishes with a sweet caramel and nut toast fade with a streak of iodine and peat."

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Malt

"Nose: Sea-salt, peat sherry. Body: Full, smooth. Palate: The dryness of the whisky itself is at first offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. As the palate develops, the salty notes in particular emerge."

A cut above the standard 10 year old June 20, 2014

On the nose, salty, mineral, medicinal, iodine, strong peat smoke, coal fire, vanilla, slight fruit. On the palate, salt water and sweet spice at the beginning, develops into a strong, phenolic peat explosion with iodine, pepper, and smoked fish (perhaps salmon?). The addition of a touch of water tones down the peat and brings out more vanilla, nutmeg, slight citrus fruit, and a hint of floral. I prefer it without water.

Laphroaig QC March 04, 2014
Reviewed by: Hawkeye

Nose initially very similar to Laphroaig 10, but more assertive and fruitier (smoke/smoked pork shoulder, peat, brine, with sweetness in the background, getting hints of orange too)…reminds me of mixed berries, almost. Taste is smoky and sweet, malty, in a way similar to barbecue, with white pepper and some dried fruit in the background. Noticeably sweeter and almost more sherry-like, and less grainy than the 10. Caramel and a hint of coffee detected on the finish initially, but fades. Better w/o water.

This is outstanding stuff, possibly the best value in scotch there is.

Laphroaig Quarter Cask 96 proof July 29, 2013
Reviewed by: "Texacer" from Reddit.com/r/scotch

- Color: bronze golden - Nose: Caramel peat. Full bodied strong smacking floral nose. A vanilla campfire dosed in seawater and smoldering. Homemade bread - Taste: Coffee, Buttercream, Stout Beer, a Well done Steak, Brown Sugar, Smores, Pipe Smoke Vanilla. BBQ, Seaweed, Sweet/bitter Cacao, Burnt Toffee, Caramel Maple, Wood Oil, Coca Cola and Raisins. - Finish: long and terrific. Melts in your mouth, warmth. Why is it called Quarter Cask? Because it goes through the last 9 months of its maturation in a smaller cask. Smaller casks were used in the 1800s because they were easy to tote around stagecoaches…
