A 25 year old single malt from the Highland Blair Athol distillery, bottled for the Xtra Old Particular range by Douglas Laing. This one was matured from September 1995 to December 2020 in a single ex-sherry butt (cask 14585), and then bottled at cask strength with small outturn of only 276 bottles.
"The nose is full of rich spices with a hint of charred wood and burnt brown sugar sweetness. The palate initially reveals honeycomb and barley before developing to peaches in syrup and ripe bananas. The long finish shows a creamy, gristy style with apple peel and cinnamon". CSL
700mL. 57.5% VOL. From a cask of only 276 bottles.
