Each year Distillery Manager, John Campbell, handcrafts a limited edition malt to celebrate friendship (“Cairdeas” in Gaelic).
Laphroaig Cairdeas 15 Year Old is an ongoing part of the Friends of Laphroaig program.
This annual limited edition was distilled throughout 2002, then poured into first-fill ex-bourbon barrels to age next to the Atlantic Ocean. These barrels yield a bright gold colour, more intense vanilla flavour and subtle spice notes during the maturation process.
The result is a unique expression to be savoured by Friends of Laphroaig, old and new
