Laphroaig Cairdeas Port & Wine Casks Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky



Càirdeas is the Gaelic word for ‘friendship’. Each year, the Laphroaig distillery manager, John Campbell, crafts a limited edition Càirdeas single malt to celebrate Friends of Laphroaig and to coincide with the annual Feis Ile festive on Islay.

The 2020 annual release of Laphroaig Càirdeas, Port & Wine Casks, continues Laphroaig's long history of innovation. A unique marriage of the classic Laphroaig whisky rested in second-fill Ruby Port ‘barriques’ along with whisky double matured in ex-Bourbon barrels followed by ex-red wine casks. Soft, round and warming, it’s an incredible ‘friendship’ that charts continents, styles and flavors.

Aromas of dark chocolate and menthol with pink peppercorns open up to an extraordinarily complex flavor. Toasted peaches, charred marshmallows, and a hint of plum jam intertwine with Laphroaig’s iodine-rich peat smoke to create a limited edition that lingers long on the palate and the memory.
