Laphroaig Cairdeas 2013 Edition (70cl, 51.3%)

SW_IL_LAPH_001

A limited edition port finished Laphroaig release for Fèis Ìle 2013, the Islay whisky festival. Initially matured in bourbon casks, this Single Malt Scotch Whisky has an incredible pink hue. Cairdeas, meanwhile, is the Gaelic for 'friendship' and can be pronounced more-or-less “car-chase”.  A very hard to find bottling!

Laphroaig is named for the area of land at the head of Loch Laphroaig on the south coast of the Isle of Islay. The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay". The distillery and brand are owned and operated by Beam Suntory, the American subsidiary of Japan's Suntory Holdings.
