Each year the Laphroaig Master Distiller, John Campbell, handcrafts a limited edition malt to celebrate friendship (“Cairdeas“ in Gaelic).
This 2016 bottling features fully-matured Laphroaig aged in ex-bourbon barrels before being artfully married together for a second maturation in Madeira seasoned traditional hogsheads.
As you begin to enjoy this expression, you’ll find an aroma of ripe orange fruits and sweet liqorice moving into spices and dry mixed peppers before concluding with a lovely dry, nutty finish.
On the palate peaty, earthy flavors emerge, followed by a hint of dry saltiness. Creamy orange tones follow as this Cairdeas finishes with a bold and lingering spicy dryness.
This 2016 Cairdeas has been bottled at 51.6% ABV and is non chill filtered.
