Detailed info

Founded in 1815, this distillery is located not far from Lagavulin. « Laphroaig » is derived from the Gaelic « Lag a'mhor aig », which means « the beautiful hollow by the broad bay ». We dare you to be indifferent! Laphroaig's whiskies may unsettle novices but aficionados just love their very powerful flavours of smoke, seaweed and this undeniable touch that some qualify as « medicinal ».

As its name indicates, Laphroaig Quarter Cask is aged in smaller casks than the distillery's other offerings. True to its roots, it displays the maker's typical profile, with a more present woody character reminiscent of caramel, coconut, banana and vanilla. The aging in Bourbon casks accentuate this profile, adding fragrances of brandied cherries.
