This Laphroaig Cairdeas 2014 Single Malt Whisky has been double matured first in “first fill” ex-bourbon casks then in Amontillado hogsheads for one year.
Laphroaig Cairdeas 2014 Tasting Notes :-
The Amontillado barrels give it a rich burnt orange colour.
The nose starts off with dusty, gentle cinnamon hints and then distinctive lemon zest.
This moves into earthy figs and dates before nutty, creamy brazil nuts come to the fore.
This complex nose then changes with elements of carbolic soap before finally finishing with a lovely lingering salted liquorice note.
