Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Laphroaig Cairdeas Ileach Edition whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Laphroaig Cairdeas Ileach Edition whiskey, instead of whisky.

Bottling Note

A special version of Laphroaig Cairdeas (pronounced "carchase"), the Ileach edition is named in reference to John Campbell, the whisky's creator. John is the first ever Islay-born Master Distiller at Laphroaig. He used Maker's Mark bourbon barrels in the creation of this, and bottled it at natural cask strength.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Good level of sweetness on the nose. We get Gipsy Tart dressed with TCP (not a recommended dessert), some light fruit, perhaps a hint of stewed pear and vanilla. Hints of sooty smoke, and maybe even some lychee and menthol too, and just a soupcon of perfume.

Palate: Really oily, with huge peat smoke mixed with creamy, buttery sweetness. As you hold it in the mouth, foam banana sweets develop, with hints of chocolate and apple strudel. It tastes exactly like a sweeter version of the pungent smell at the distillery; there’s that wonderful savoury peat smoke from the maltings; some seaweedy/slightly medicinal tones (which drift in from the beach); and slightly dry salt air.

Finish: Long. Big charcoal notes at the back of the palate, maybe just a suggestion of Mezcal, which works really well.

Overall: A great dram. In fact, our favourite Feis Ile bottling so far! It’s a bit like peated bourbon. ‘Pourbon’ if you will.
