This expression offers an irresistible doubling of flavour due to the double maturation in two casks made of American oak.</p>
<p>Still-maturing whisky from our standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in our warehouse just a stone's throw from the Atlantic shore.</p>
<p>This process represents Laphroaig breathing new life into a once-defunct tradition: the use of the smaller cask size, which ensures increased contact with the oak, creating a soft and velvety edge to complement Laphroaig's distinctive peatiness.</p>
<p>On the nose the sensation is toffee and caramel, caused by the vanillas and tannins of the American oak, plus a dryness from the wood oil.</p>
<p>The finish is long and alternates between this sweetness and smoke.</p>
