Laphroaig Càirdeas 2023 White Port & Madeira
LAPHROAIG CÀIRDEAS 2023 WHITE PORT & MADEIRA CASKS TAKES FLAVOURS FROM MUCH-LOVED RELEASES OVER RECENT YEARS AND ADDS A TEMPERATE MEDITERRANEAN FEEL.
Three quarters of the single malt has been matured in second-fill Madeira casks, releasing smoky, spicy, and sweet fruit flavours, while the final quarter has been finished in first-fill Port casks. Thanks to the contact in these mostly white port barrels, you get warm hints of crisp apple fruits and a deep woodiness. Each sip delivers sweet tasting smoothness with a lingering earthy peat and creosote phenolic character, finishing off with a slight sea-salt sensation.
