Drawing upon the richness of our heritage, three quarters of this exceptional whisky have been matured in second-fill Madeira casks, allowing the spirit to delve into depths of flavor previously unexplored. As you indulge in each sip, a symphony of smoky, spicy, and sweet fruit notes dances upon your palate, a testament to the artistry of our craft.
But the journey doesn't end there. The final quarter of our Càirdeas expression takes a daring twist, as it is lovingly finished in first-fill Port casks. Among these, the majority are white port, imparting a subtle yet distinctive touch of crisp fruitiness and deep woodiness to the flavor profile. It is a marriage of flavors that is both unexpected and mesmerizing, a testament to the artistry of our master distillers.
This new interpretation of Laphroaig's character plays to our strengths, as we open our doors to friends old and new. It is an invitation to explore the complexities and nuances of our whisky, to indulge in a sensory experience that reveals layer upon layer of depth and intrigue.
With each sip of our Càirdeas expression for 2023, you become part of a story that transcends time. It is a story of friendship, of shared moments and cherished memories, brought to life through the alchemy of carefully selected casks and the expertise of our distilling team.
So raise your glass and immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Laphroaig's Càirdeas expression.
