LAPHROAIG has launched what it claims is the world’s first quarter cask matured single malt. The whisky is matured in a standard size barrel before being transferred to the smaller cask for the final stage of maturation. The quarter cask allows up to 30% more of the spirit to be in contact with the wood, giving the spirit a discernibly creamier taste. Quarter Cask is targeted at 30-45-year-old male drinkers.
