Reviews for Laphroaig Càirdeas Madeira Cask - Fèis Ìle 2016
Lacks the depth of a genuine Madeira Finish
A nice Laphroaig with strong elements of the Makers Mark first fill cask. The bourbon characteristics shine through much more than the Seasoned Madeira Hogsheads. Sweet vanilla, caramel, candy, hints of coconut.
The Madeira influence is very much in the background and because it is seasoned and not full maturation in a Madeira cask, lacks the walnut oil and hazelnut, strong spices, especially chilli and cardoman spice, cloves etc.
Value for money.......not really, but s nice enough malt.

Very nice variation on the normal Laphroaig. Is it worth the extra cash? Only if you paid the original FOL price.
Quite viscous, oily and even waxy. Colour dark orange. Madeira hogsheads have certainly affected the colour less so the nose.
Nose - peat smoke, ash and a bit briney. The Madeira cask is very much in the background. Lacks the usual Laphroaig ortho and meta cresol medicinal or TCA aromas.
Palate - initial sweetness overpowered by salt and smoke. Sweetness is in the background. Chilli spiciness very prominent. Oily and waxy.
Finish - fruitiness a bit more prominent as smoke fades. Tannic, astringent. Astringency is long lasting. Interestingly the strong chilli is not present in the finish.

No hint anywhere of the woodiness from the fresh wood from the hogshead ends.
