Laphroaig Cairdeas 2021 Cask Strength Pedro Ximénez Casks
Each year our Distillery Manager, John Campell, crafts a limited edition malt to celebrate the Friends of Laphroaig and friendship (“Càirdeas” in Gaelic).
Càirdeas 2021 is triple matured. The first maturation is in 1st Fill American Oak ex-Bourbon Barrels, the second in American Oak ex-Bourbon Quarter Casks, and finally finished in European Oak Hogsheads originally containing PX sherry. Each cask combines to create a complex Laphroaig expression full go character. The influence of the PX casks adds a sweetness that is balanced with oak and all the much-loved classic Laphroaig flavours of peat, smoke, and salt. Bottled at casks strength to ensure all the rich and intricate flavours come through on this distinct and unique expression.
