The 2014 Cairdeas release ("Cairdeas", pronounced 'car-chase', means 'friendship' in Gaelic) was matured in bourbon barrels and Amontillado hogsheads. Created by Laphroaig Master Distiller John Campbell, it's bottled at 51.4% abv.
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.
