The 2017 edition of Laphroaig distillery's yearly Cairdeas bottling – it's 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 if people wearing 'Cask Strength Quarter Cask' t-shirts at his tastings, he relented and the 2017 release was born.
It does exactly what you'd expect, dialling up the intensity of the Laphroaig Quarter Cask and delivering even more medicinal smoke and sweet spice.
