Each year, Laphroaig Distillery Manager, John Campbell, crafts a limited edition malt to celebrate friendship
(“Cairdeas” in Gaelic). Those who were lucky enough to attend this year’s Fèis Ìle celebrations had the chance to
share a dram of this unique whisky, which is one of the most anticipated Laphroaig offerings each year.
This year’s limited release is a triple maturation. First matured in ex-bourbon barrels, the liquid is next saturated
with flavor in smaller quarter casks, and finished in European oak casks that previously housed Oloroso sherry,
giving the expression a sweet and smooth finish. It is then barrier filtered and bottled at cask strength to create a
punchy dram with Laphroaig’s signature richness of flavor and smoky taste.
Proof: 119 (59.5% ABV)
Laphroaig Cairdeas Triple Wood is available for a limited time at fine retail locations nationwide at a
suggested retail price of $79.99/750 mL bottle..
