Laphroaig 27 years old Oloroso Cask 2008 Release Tasting notein Tasting , Laphroaig
“Heaven exists! And I am really happy this bottle is sold out because I would have had to buy one no matter the price.”
Chosen among thousands of casks, only five casks that previously held Oloroso sherry were used to create this awesome thick and full single malt with a deep hue.
It isn't ever neat the experience but you can get an idea of what you are missing with the great Bunnahabhain 20 years old from Master of Malt single class bottlings.
This dram has a old oak-like color.
Nose (95): more than average. peat, raisins, varnish, dates, nuts, citrus. Perfect nose! There is almost no room for anything better than this Laphroaig.
Palate (95): smooth, powerful, oily. peat, wood, spices, tobacco, nuts, citrus, salt, earth, oysters. Absolutely mindblowing whisky!
Finish (92): longer than average. peat, wood, apples, citrus, nuts, floral.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Laphroaig 27 Year Old Oloroso Cask (2008 Release) with 94 points over 100.
