Matured in Laphroaig’s iconic warehouse a skipping-stone’s throw from the Islay coast for flavors of peat, smoke, and sea salt that soar with bitter maritime character.
Laphroaig’s Càirdeas expression for 2022 reflects how Friends bring out more in each other. This limited edition single malt, aged in first-fill ex-Maker’s Mark bourbon barrels, dials up the quintessential Laphroaig taste. Classic flavors are elevated by a coastal character that can only come from sea spray and storms. It’s a match made in Islay.
Warehouse 1’s rare four-storey construction, with varying levels of temperature and humidity, and exposure to rugged conditions tease out Laphroaig’s enigmatic flavors and lend a maritime quality to the final whisky. Bottled at 52.2% ABV for a memorable experience to share with your Friends.
