The Laphroaig Quarter Cask is a Scotch whisky belonging to the NAS category (No Age Statement), which means products for which aging is not declared. Translated: the maturation is all but long.
This Laphroaig is matured in smaller barrels than usual, and these are called Quarter Cask. By using this type of cask, the wooden surface in contact with the distillate is much greater than what occurs in traditional barrels (about 5 times bigger) and this means that the wood yields more aromas to the distillate in a shorter time.
