Douglas Laing's Old Particular range of Scotch Whiskies are a particularly unique series of individually hand-selected, aged Single Cask Single Malts and Single Grains from all over Scotland. Each is bottled exactly the way the Distiller intended: without colouring or chill-filtration, and at high alcohol strength. This combination allows the cask to retain the naturally present oils, fats and enzymes in the spirit that enhance the quality of the nose, the mouthfeel and flavour profile of the Whisky. Keeping the spirit “as natural as it gets” allows you to experience the Whisky straight from the cask, transporting you to a dark, damp Distillery warehouse with every sip.
Distilled at an undisclosed Orkney Distillery in 1999 before maturation in a single refill hogshead #14288, bottled in August 2020 without colour additions or chill filtration. Only 236 bottles produced.
From the bottler: "Nose: Maritime and pelagic, with a sprinkling of salt ahead of gently peated Malt. Palate: Initially sweet, ahead of a smoky and phenolic centre, then toffee and spice. Finish: More peat to the fore, with vanilla, a hint of citrus and a salt-and-malt amalgam." (FHL)
700mL, 48.4% VOL. From a single cask of only 236 bottles.
