Matured in Laphroaig's iconic warehouse located 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 our 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-story construction, with varying levels of temperature and humidity, and exposure to rugged conditions tease out the distillery's enigmatic flavors and lend a maritime quality to the final whisky. Bottled at a fixed strength of 52.2% for a memorable experience to share with your Friends. Aged in first-fill ex-Maker’s Mark bourbon casks exclusively in Warehouse 1, giving extra exposure to the elements.
