This bundle contains Cáirdeas 2020 and 2021. 

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.

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.
