Featured Distillery of the Month

There are over 120 active distilleries spread across Scotland, which are split into five whisky-producing regions; Campbeltown, Highland, Islay, Lowland and Speyside. The location of the distillery can have a big impact on the flavour and produce some of the finer nuances; everything from the water, the weather, the environment and the peat can play a part.

Each month we will be featuring a different whisky distillery by highlighting the very best of the "water of life" from their ranges. We invite you to learn about each of these wonderful birthplaces of our favourite spirit and sample the best they produce.

Read our thoughts on this expression.
Special for its triple maturation, creating a unique blend of Laphroaig’s signature peat-smoked liquid, with softer notes of fruit and spices.

This whisky is matured firstly in ex-bourbon barrels, then transferred into quarter casks for the second maturation, to finally finish with ex-oloroso sherry European oak casks.

Week 3: Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Read our thoughts on this expression.
This single malt was double matured in two American oak casks; firstly ex-bourbon barrels are used and after, the liquid is transferred to quarter casks.

The use of smaller casks ensures increased contact with the wood, creating a soft and velvety edge to complement the distinctive peatiness.
