The yearly highly anticipated release of Laphroaig Cairdeas, Gaelic for "Friendship". This year's release is a marriage of Laphroaig matured in port casks, and bourbon casks matured Laphroaig finished in red wine casks.
Very well balanced. Red fruits, syrupy, smoke is slightly toned-down probably from the richer casks. Coats the palate, chewy and long. Delicious!
