Laphroaig Cairdeas 2019 Triple Wood Cask Strength 119 proof Single Malt Islay Scotch Whisky 750 mL

$99.99 $89.99

Rich’s Notes  golden bronze color from Oloroso cask age, gorgeous nose of nuts, almond and sherry sweetness with brooding phenolics poking out from below, notes of wood smoke and ash, railroad ties and chloraseptic. On the palate vanilla notes and sweeter sherry notes play off of the peat flavors with a beautiful barbecue finish. I’d pair this with a well charred strip steak or burnt barbecue brisket ends in barbecue sauce!”

Cairdeas Triple Wood Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 59.5 Percent Alcohol by Volume

Each year, Laphroaig Distillery Manager, John Campbell, crafts a limited edition malt to celebrate friendship (“Cairdeas” in Gaelic). Those who were lucky enough to attend this year’s Fèis Ìle
celebrations had the chance to share a dram of this unique whisky, which is one of the most anticipated Laphroaig offerings each year.

This year’s limited release is a triple maturation. First matured in ex-bourbon barrels, the liquid is next saturated with flavor in smaller quarter casks, and finished in European oak casks that previously housed Oloroso sherry, giving the expression a sweet and smooth finish. It is then barrier filtered and bottled at cask strength to create a punchy dram with Laphroaig’s signature richness of flavor and smoky taste.

Proof: 119 (59.5% ABV)
