The textbook definition of fine Scotch.

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet), rumor has it that his royal highness Prince Charles of Wales is a fan of the ‘L’ Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favorite Scotch. For a long while, there’s been a frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch, especially those less-available expressions.

This offering definitely falls into the “less-available” category. A Laphroaig of this age is hard to come by. Laphroaig 28 Year Old Limited Edition was born from 27YO casks that spent an additional year in Sherry. It’s exactly what you’d imagine high-quality (and expensive) Scotch to taste like. This particular one is sweet, fruity, and warm with plenty of layers for you to discover when sipping neat or to incorporate in your premium cocktail.

Laphroaig was the only 'legal' Whisky to be sold in the US during Prohibition. Officials were persuaded that Laphroaig Whisky could be used for medical purposes, since it had a strong iodine character.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
One who buys any Laphroaig official bottles has the chance to own a one square foot of land, on the Laphroaig estates.
Maker's Mark is Laphroaig's main source for barrels.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
