Laphroaig Cairdeas Port And Wine Cask
Each year our Distillery Manager, John Campbell, crafts a limited edition malt to celebrate the friends of Laphroaig and friendship ("Càirdeas" in Gaelic) in general. Càirdeas 2020 is a marriage of our distinctive single malt Scotch aged in two different types of wood. While some matures in our typical way, in charred ex-Bourbon barrels, the rest is poured into second fill ruby Port barriques. Both are blended together to finish their maturation in red wine casks. This particular aging method lends honeyed sweetness, dark chocolate richness and pink peppercorn spice to the signature Laphroaig taste of medicinal smoke and ocean salt. Here's to friendship.
