Single grain Scotch from the Cameronbridge distillery, matured for 30 years in a single refill hogshead between October 1991 and May 2022. Bottled up at 30 years old, this expression joins the Old Particular series from independent bottler Douglas Laing, with a release of 168 bottles.
An indie bottling of single grain Scotch whisky from the Cameronbridge Distillery, and a rather well-matured one at that! This expression was distilled back in January 1978 and aged in a single refill barrel for a huge 43 years before being bottled in September 2021. A release of just 200 bottles.
30 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the fabulous Glen Keith Distillery, bottled up for Douglas Laing's Extra Old Particular range. This one was matured in a refill butt for three decades, from July 1991 to September 2021, before eventually being bottled at 50.8% ABV, with an outturn of only 427 bottles. Snazzy bottles they are, too.
Douglas Laing are well known for bottling excellent single casks in their Old Particular range and for producing Big Peat, a best selling Islay blended malt, and with this special release they have combined the two. This is a single cask from an un-named Islay distillery, but it's a good bet that it's a distillery that contributes to Big Peat's blended malt. It's been drawn from a re-fill sherry butt, where it slumbered for 15 years, then bottled at a hearty 48.4% with no added colour and no chill filtration. Expect smoky BBQ, espresso and sweet cereal notes from this mysterious dram.
