This started out as a travel retail exclusive, but has received limited distribution in selected markets in recent years. It is twice-filtered in sugar maple charcoal and finished in maple casks as well, and that becomes apparent on the nose with notes of maple syrup, bacon, honey, caramel, a soft oakiness, and muted spices. The taste starts off light at first, then develops a good spiciness balanced by honey, caramel, and of course, a hint of maple. The finish is long with lingering spices and a touch of brown sugar.

Update: In April, 2019, Brown-Forman announced that No. 27 Gold would be available nationwide in the United States.
