Description

The 2017 edition of Laphroaig distillery’s yearly Cairdeas bottling, released at the Islay festival and it’s name means ‘friendship’ in gaelic. At a previous year’s festival, distillery manager John Campbell poured a cask strength version of the ever-popular Laphroaig Quarter Cask, and it so caught the imagination of the assembled fans that they started lobbying him to release a version as a Cairdeas bottling. After a few years of people wearing ‘Cask Strength Quarter Cask’ t-shirts at his tastings, he relented and the 2017 release was born.

 

Bottled at Cask Strength
