Laphroaig Cairdeas 2014 Bottling Note

The 2014 Cairdeas release ("Cairdeas", pronounced 'car-chase', means 'friendship' in Gaelic) was matured in bourbon barrels and Amontillado hogsheads.

Created by Laphroaig Master Distiller John Campbell, it's bottled at 51.4% abv.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed info and/or photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Banana, honey and some Marmite-y yeast notes. There's a heap of brown sugar in here too as well as peaty porridge and a little dried papaya.

Palate: Bacon, dates, a bit more yeast and well-barbecued apple slices.

Finish: Some kind of salted barbecued goods (not my Mastermind subject).

Overall: Breakfast whisky, only the breakfast is a bit all over the place. It's many breakfasts at once really, which, as it's a whisky not a breakfast, might actually be fine?

Great drum, so much peat and smoke!

I really enjoyed it. I had it at the scotch show first time. When I tried it first I was amazed, to start with great smell, so rich , a bit of dry figs,brown sugar smell...Beautiful! I kept coming back for more, even after Lagavulin this was number 1!

Found it very rich and complex

I enjoyed the complex nose for a good 10 minutes before even tasting. SO much going on with this one. Very rich and multitudinous flavours. Immensely enjoyable. One of my top five currently.

Some Birthday present

All I could "nose" was the smell of smoked Kippers. The after "palet" was all heavy smoke an peat. Unless your into that heavy earthy Malt, beware. Next morning I cleaned the drain out with it, works but now the kitchen smells.

Best Laphroaig for me

I bought 3 bottles in 2014. Drank 2. This Whisky is getting better and better. My favourite Laphroaig. Better than An Cuan Mor. I wished L. would produce this Amontillado combination regularly.

I need a bottle of this

Tried this at a whisky bar in Philadelphia. It is quite good!

This is by far my favorite whisky right now. Bummed that it won't be around for long, but I'm keeping one extra bottle for a later date.

Im the typical peat head that loves the Islay stuff, Ardbeg, Laphroiag, Bowmore, Kilchoman etc...preferably cask strenght. Laphroaig Cairdeas and Ardbeg Corryvreckan are my two favorite whiskies. If u like peat, get this whisky!
