Distilled between October 1988 and November 1989, this limited edition release from Laphroaig was released in March 2017 resulting in a maturation of over 27 years (firstly in refill hogsheads, then vatted together and then transferred into first fill ex-bourbon barrels and refill quarter casks matured in the legendary Warehouse No.1 vaults and finally married together for a final maturation).
With the trademark peat smoke of Laphroaig, this rare whisky is tempered with notes of lime and sea salt with a finish reminscent of antique leather and green tobacco leaf. About 7,500 bottles were released.
