Rarity LAPHROAIG 27 year old 1981 Of

LAPHROAIG 27 year old 1981 Of 56,6%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: COL14952

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

A blend of five Oloroso sherry casks selected by master blender Robert Hicks and distillery director John Campbell, this 27 year old limited edition (736 bottles) was bottled in 2008. This Laphroaig, with an impressive colour, reveals a remarkably well-structured palette of flavours and aromas in which fruity, floral and spicy notes coexist in perfect harmony with an increasingly animal peat. It would be impossible not to also mention the magnificent tawny nuances of the retronasal olfaction that stunningly punctuate the tasting.

Profile: the ample initial nose reveals blood orange and oily peat. Allowed to breathe, it becomes exotic (passion fruit), ashy and animal (bacon). Next, heady florals and spices enrich the aromatic palette. The mellow attack is velvety (cocoa), smoky and heady (lily, tuberose). With time, blocks of peat invade the palate. The concentrated finish is fruity (gooseberry), smoky (hearth), liquorice and honeyed (pine).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Nose : full-bodied and creamy. On the initial nose, blood orange and an oily peat share the aromatic palette equally between them. Next, the fruity register develops into passion fruit, mango, apricot and wild strawberry. For its part, the peaty register becomes more animal (leather, bacon), saline and ashy (chimney). Meanwhile, spices (candied ginger, cinnamon), aromatic plants (chamomile, verbena), heather honey and heady florals (lilac, iris butter) add their two cents.
  • Palate : firm and mellow. The attack is exceptionally velvety (cocoa, orange zest, wild peach skin). At the same time, smoke, ash, thick soot and emery cloth permeate the increasingly heady air (lily, rose, tuberose). The very dense and compact mid-palate literally pours out blocks of now more dry but just as animal (grilled meat) and herbaceous (tobacco) peat. The very malty end of the palate wavers between dark chocolate, vanilla and citrus fruit (orange, mandarin).
  • Overall : long, concentrated. The very fleshy finish invites us to savour gooseberry and the same blood orange from the nose, whilst raspberry appears alongside wild strawberry. A tasting held by the hearth of a crackling fire. On the retronasal olfaction, liquorice stick, turmeric and very ripe banana bring the flavour palette a magnificent tawny colour. In turn animal, the empty glass is also characterized by notes of incense, pine resin and pine honey.

The brand

Due to its phenolic character, Laphroaig is well-known among amateurs. It’s no surprise then that the distillery owns its own peat bog, capable of guaranteeing the supply of peat for the next 4,000 years. Laphroaig will never lose its character nor, consequently, its fans and its critics – since such a peaty malt cannot be loved unanimously – even its water, drawn from the Loch Kilbride spring, is filtered through peat!
