Product Description

Indulge in the irresistible flavors of Islay Scotch with the limited edition Laphroaig Fino Cairdeas 2018 Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Sitting on the south coast of the Isle of Islay, the Laphroaig distillery was established in 1815 making it one of the oldest operational distilleries in Scotland. This long history of making whiskey translates into expertise, something that is on full display in every one of the distillery’s products from their captivating core range to their superb limited releases.

Named after the Gaelic word for friendship, the Laphroaig Fino Cairdeas 2018 Edition was only available to Friends of Laphroaig members prior to getting a wider release in August 2018. Like many of their expressions, the Scotch starts with a mash bill of 100% malted Scottish barley dried over peat flames and distilled in traditional copper pot stills before being aged in ex-bourbon casks. The whiskey is then finished in ex-Fino sherry casks prior to being bottled at a hearty 103.6 proof, adding another layer of flavor to this already exquisite Scotch.

On the nose, the golden whiskey conveys a distinct aroma of dry sherry along with notes of fragrant dried florals, roasted nuts, and dried cereals. This is complemented by a sweet and creamy palate of more dry sherry, pear, dark fruit, burnt sugar, light peat smoke, honey, caramel, creme brûlée, sea salt, and spiced nuts, framed by a medium finish of dried fruits, honey, and caramel with a noticeable alcohol warmth.

An impressive display of cask finishing and a worthy addition to the Cairdeas series, the Laphroaig Fino Cairdeas 2018 Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the perfect tipple for those leisurely sipping sessions and one that will have you going for pour after pour.
