Douglas Laing has been independently bottling Scotch since 1948, and have several ranges that include blended malts, blended whiskies, single malts, and single grain. The Old Particular range consists of single cask malt or grain whiskies sourced from highly-sought after distilleries from all over Scotland, all non-chill filtered, with no added colouring and bottled at natural cask strength. Inchgower malts are commonly used in blends, and independent bottlings such as this 255-bottle release are quite rare. On the nose, you get white grape and pear skin, then a palate of vanilla, butter cake, apricot jam, honey and cardamom spice. The finish has more honey caramel notes. A lovely dram.
