This bottling was released on the 2018 Fèis Ìle Open Day for Laphroaig. Cairdeas means "friendship" in Gaelic. The single malt matured in Warehouse 8 and 10 and was first placed in first-fill bourbon casks before finishing its maturation in Fino sherry casks. 
Member Ratings and Notes

n: speck, dried mango, with a heap of smoke. Plastic and almonds.


t: bonfire smoke and peach notes w/ a funky bit of sweet plastic. Smoked meat and burnt marzipan in middle. Overall, nutty and dry on the front end with the smoke bringing up the rear in a long, turning sweet finish. Very enjoyable and oily mouthfeel.



Quite nice, one of the better (interesting) Cairdeas releases.
