Each year, we craft a limited edition malt to celebrate the Friends of Laphroaig and friendship (“Càirdeas” in Gaelic). Càirdeas 2022 is exclusively matured in first-fill Maker’s Mark bourbon casks and solely aged in our landmark warehouse that proudly bears our name. Each cask reflects the unique maritime character of Warehouse 1 – its exposure to the elements lends a shoreline astringency to the classic Laphroaig flavors of peat, smoke, and salt – with unrivaled nuance from its rare four-story construction. For nearly two centuries, this paragon of Islay has whisky, buckling just once to a notorious deluge. This bottling strength befits a treasured partner, whose contribution to our renowned flavour profile is now given well-deserved recognition. Laphroaig Càirdeas – friendship distilled.
