Laphroaig 27 Year Limited Edition Scotch Whiskey

This whisky was also named 2019 Best Single Malt Scotch 10 Years & Under by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.

In 2015, to celebrate its 200th anniversary, Laphroaig launched a 32 Year Old exclusive – the highest aged whisky it had released in over 8 years. In 2016, Laphroaig 30 Year Old was launched and in 2017 the 27 Year Old Double Matured Laphroaig continues this series. The entire range is presented in white wooden boxes with hand carved images of the distillery inside.

To make this exquisite liquid, mature Laphroaig previously aged in refill hogsheads was transferred into first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and refill quarter casks. Patiently aged in Laphroaig’s famous Warehouse No. 1, these casks were then hand selected for a final maturation. This rare whisky features a touch of Laphroaig’s trademark peat smoke tempered by lime and sea salt. Each and every sip will be well worth the wait.

 Tasting Notes
  • Nose
    A tribute to the age, subtle nose that does not jump right in the face. At the beginning fruity with crushed overripe bananas, pineapple juice and a pinch of pepper. In the distance, sea flavors. The smoky note is now going through. Becomes slightly salty, seaweed works its way forward, a touch of machine oil pulls through. Then: coffee powder, dark chocolate, while still fruity and slightly peppery at the same time.
  • Taste
    Creamy, pleasantly strong start with cooked bananas and subtle smoke. Acts at the beginning, as if he had put on the handbrake, but that coincides in so far with the nose. Dry smoke, some Black Forest ham, pepper, less oak than you might expect. Hardly bitter or bitter, but remains beautifully supple on the tongue.
  • Finish
    Not so long … Pleasantly dry, vanilla with mild smoke and the aroma of Noriblättern.
