Laphroaig QA Cask Whisky 1L

A litre bottling of Laphroaig's QA Cask single malt Scotch whisky, which is initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels before ensuring a finishing period in charred American white oak casks. With this finishing period paired with Laphroaig's classically intense flavour profile, you might be expecting a massively in-your-face dram, but the result is very well-balanced between coastal smoke and sweet, chewy vanilla notes.

The name comes from the Latin phrase 'Quercus Alba', meaning white oak. It was originally released for Travel Retail.
Price £55.00

Tasting Notes

FLORAL


APPLE


GINGER


CARAMEL


SMOKE



Nose: Icing sugar sweetness backed up by iodine and brine. Some black rubber, warm leather and gravelly minerality hide underneath the sweetness.
Palate: Sweet and syrupy, with candied ginger, hints of black rubber, light coal smoke, bitter charcoal, sweet apple and salted caramel.
Finish: Coal stoves and floral syrup. Lingering sweetness slowly develops into soft woodiness.
