Released in 2004, this is Laphroaig’s attempt to breathe life back into a long lost tradition, the quarter cask. Firstly matured in regular sized American oak casks before being finished in much smaller quarter casks (125 liters). This greatly accelerates the ageing process due to the higher wood to spirit surface ratio. The end result is a stunning single malt bottled at 48%, non-chill-filtered. It drinks well beyond its age!
