Laphroaig 27 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a rare peated whisky from the well known Islay distillery that follows in it's series of upper-aged whiskies after the 32 and 30 year olds were released in 2015 and 2016 respectively. Laphroaig 27 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is now the third-oldest whisky they have produced; this series is presented in white collector's boxes made of wood and brass with hand carved logos of the distillery on front and interior. The whisky has been first aged in refill hogsheads, then transferred to first-fill ex-bourbon barrels as well as refill quarter casks. These final-stage maturation casks were then hand-picked for the final stage of maturation in Laphroaig's famous Warehouse No.1. On the nose, ripe tropical fruit, macadamia nuts and rich vanilla cream. Palate: light smoke, lime, nectarine, leading to sea salt and mild chili notes with leather and young tobacco leaf noticeable in the aftertaste.
