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 2021 is triple matured in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, followed by quarter casks and finally in European oak hogsheads containing PX sherry. This creates a complex expression that is full of character that we've bottled at cask strength to ensure rich and intricate flavours. Here's to friendship!
· Celebration of friendship developed by Laphroaig's Distillery Manager
· Smoky aromas of grilled bacon, as well as manuka honey and oak spices
· Tasting notes are nutty, combined with a blend of toffee and cinnamon on the nose
· Limited edition 2021 bottling
Cask Details: Triple Matured – Ex-Bourbon Barrel followed by Quarter Casks followed by European Oak Perdo Ximenes Hogsheads.
Nose: Medicinal, nutty and sweet with notes of pine tar, strong almond and marzipan, hazelnut and praline character combine with candyfloss, stewed apple and toffee but also cherries, gooseberries and cinnamon.
Taste: Smoky and peaty with slightly ashy notes of cured ham and grilled bacon but also sweet and fruity flavours of Manuka honey, liquorice roots, but also cooked apples, malt and oak spices edging toward pencil shavings.
Finish: Still hot and spicy, with a touch of sea salt and dried seaweed.
