Islay whisky brand Big Peat has unveiled the final release in its Aged Trilogy Vintage Series.

The 27-year-old Black Edition, in a limited edition run of 3,000 bottles, completes the producer's trio of mature and collectable peat malt whiskies.

It follows the Gold Edition, aged 25 years and launched in 2017, and last year’s 26-year-old Platinum Edition.

Bottled at 48.3% and offered without colouring or chill-filtration, the Black Edition is said to carry a “complex amalgam of barbecued meats, coal dust and rock salt". Further tasting notes suggest "hints of briney sea air, chewed leather and a honey sweetness".

The 27 Years Old Black Edition is available from specialist spirits retailers globally.

Big Peat celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2019 including with the release of a 10-year-old limited edition.
