Laphroaig QA Cask Double Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky (1000ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$99.99 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

Laphroaig's recent focus on wood maturation follows the same trail pioneered by the likes of Glenmorangie. Quarter Cask, Triple Wood and PX Cask, which were all matured in bourbon casks, followed by a finish in quarter casks, and in the case of the last two, a further finish in sherry casks, each mark a departure from Laphroaig's traditional age statement releases. The new QA Cask is yet another, this time matured in ex-bourbon casks and then finished in virgin, uncharred American oak casks – hence the sub title, 'QA', being an abbreviation of 'Quercus Alba', the latin name for American oak. How long the finishing period was remains unstated, rather the term ‘double matured’ is adopted on the label. It could be months or years. This bottling is otherwise a Travel Retail exclusive. We have a small quantity on offer in a one litre format .

Tasting note: Bright gold. A soft, kippery, vanilla-malt infusion on the nose gains an iodine / elastoplast edge with vanilla later vying for centre stage. Light and relaxed by Laphroaig standards with delicate chilli pepper, soft smoke, kipper and drying vanilla malt closing the finish followed by an equally dry and surprisingly subdued aftertaste. Oak can both give and take away. In this case the outcome is a sedate alternative to the typically assertive distillery style. 40% alc./vol.
