Laphroaig distillery has revealed the 2019 edition of the annual Càirdeas release, a bottling reserved exclusively for the Friends of Laphroaig and for the Fèis Ìle festival on Islay.
Laphroaig Càirdeas Triple Wood Cask Strength has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels, followed by maturation in quarter casks and ex-oloroso sherry casks. It’s bottled at cask strength (51.4% abv) without chill filtration and will be sold online for £77 (€89 / $99) per 70cl bottle. Some bottles will be available at the Laphroaig distillery shop during Fèis Ìle later this month, too.
