Proof66 Notes

The Laphroaig Cairdeas single malt is a line of annual edition scotches aged in specialty woods with the word cairdeas translated from the Gaelic as "fellowship" or "friendship." The 2013 edition was the Cairdeas Port Wood edition, with the whisky spending 8 years in American oak followed by 14 months in port wood casks. The port casks will tend to give a fruit and floral note to the whisky as well as a darker color.

Laphroaig and a port wood finish; two of my favorite things in the whisk(e)y world! Everything about this edition is fantastic. It has a great color; a reddish tinge to the standard light gold Laphroaig coloring. The aroma is quite tame for a youthful (9 years) Islay scotch. It has the standard Laphroaig characteristics, though muted, and some fruitiness in there as well. On the palate the peatiness takes on a tangy quality that pairs very nicely with fruit (blackberries and raspberries), brine, and smoke. On the finish the tang and fruit hang around for a while. This whisky definitely isn't cheap, but trust me when I say it's worth it. I made the leap and bought two bottles; one to drink and one to keep.
