Strathclyde 11 Year Old (2006 - single Grain whisky) - Old Particular by Douglas Laing
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.
Sampling this back in October 2017 I was reminded of the great quality and value that can be found in single grain whiskies. Matured for 11 years in a first fill ex-sherry barrel this is full bodied with dried fruits, nuts and sweet caramel.
