Laphroaig Càirdeas White Port & Madeira Scotch
In the lexicon of whisky, Laphroaig stands as a paragon of complexity and nuance, and its latest offering, Laphroaig Càirdeas White Port & Madeira Scotch, is no exception. Assembled from the finest elements of past Càirdeas releases, this limited-edition single malt celebrates the art of blending.
Seamlessly integrating Madeira and White Port casks, it presents a distinctive symphony of flavors that bridges the Islay distillery’s legendary smokiness with fruit-forward exuberance.
The term "Càirdeas" signifies friendship in Gaelic
Soft burnished gold.
Cinnamon, freshly ground ginger, crisp green apple with notes of toasted peaches, charred orange peel, and caramelized sugar with a whisper of bonfire embers.
Honey sweetness paired with juicy citrus characters and delicate notes of hazelnut, tannic oak, dark chocolate and slightly bitter caramel leading to earthy iodine-rich smoke.
Sweet and smooth with a lingering earthy peat and creosote phenolic character. A slight sea-salt sensation to finish.
Double matured with three quarters aged in Madeira casks and the final quarter aged in White Port casks.
