Each year, the Distillery Manager at Laphroaig (John Campbell in this case) handcrafts a limited edition for the "Friends of Laphroaig" to celebrate friendship ("Cairdeas" in Gaelic). This 2019 release showcases a specific triple maturation - first in ex-bourbon barrels, second in quarter casks and lastly in ex-Oloroso Sherry Casks (European Oak). Creamy flavours of vanilla and fruit, with sherried sweetness.
