Laphroaig Cairdeas 15 Year

Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

Tasted February 23, 2020
3.75
3.75 out of 5 stars
Well well well .... time for review 201! Wanted it to be something special after my break. The nose had a lot of lavender/florals along with the trademark TCP/iodine loveliness. Peat smoke is there, along with light fruit. For the palate, rhubarb was prominent, along with overly bitter dark chocolate. To “fix” this, I added a couple drops of water from an eye dropper. This brought out more of the first fill bourbon cask oaky properties, as well as some caramel/honey and creme brûlée for better balance. The finish is medium but dry. A bit too tart without the drops for me, but I liked the peanuts/cashews aftertaste. 3.75 of 5. The theme needs to be a classy classic. “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel will do.
