Douglas Laing Director's Cut (distilled at Teaninich) 1982, 47.8%

Price: $297.00 Issue: Summer 2013 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This 30 year old bottling from Teaninich was distilled in December 1982 and matured in a refill butt. Just 201 bottles have been released from cask #9323. The nose is characterized by lemon curd, flat Coca-Cola, and spicy malt. The palate is smooth, sweet and fruity, with vanilla and stem ginger. Autumn berries and more ginger figure in the lengthy, slightly charred finish. £195
