Tobermory 23 Year Old (1996) - 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.
Tobermory bay is one of the most scenic locations in Scotland (IMO), and the home to Tobermory distillery. Tobermory on the main produces light etheral malt, that with considerable time in wood becomes increasingly smooth and subtle in it's complexity.
Notes from the bottler: "Wonderfully rich with buttered fruit scones, brown sugar and chocolate shavings. Long -creamy toffee, marmalade on toast and a chocolatey orange style." CSL
