More about this dram.
Matured in the four-storey Warehouse 1. This expression is for Feis Ile 2022. Matured in first fill Maker’s Mark bourbon Barrels. Full of Laphroaig classic aromas and flavours and enhanced by sea spray and the wild storms giving a delightful maritime flavour.
Now let’s have a taste.
Laphroaig Cairdeas – Warehouse 1, Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 52.2% Alc/vol 70 cl.
Nose…Peat smoke, TCP, seaweed drying in the sand, Caribbean fruit salad sweetness, vanilla, and a touch of saltiness.
Taste…Satisfying creamy balance, elemental smoke and ash, open first aid box, clean and fresh, some white pepper, more mixed soft fruit, an absolute delight.
Finish…Medium to long finish, maritime and smoky, seaweed, touch medicinal, a classic Laphroaig.
Loved it, just loved it. It has now become one of my favourite Laphroaigs. Priced at £92.00 and worth every penny.
