Douglas Laing Old Particular (distilled at Bunnahabhain) 16 year old, 48.4%

Price: $105 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Light gold. Fresh and clean, with light draff notes. Cool porcelain, lemon, cereal husk. It becomes more expressive on the tongue, though it remains subtle. A bit of a stealth bomb because the palate shows plenty of spice, cinnamon toast, and baklava. The finish reveals some green notes. When you add water, it becomes incredibly minty. Fragile, but if you fancy a Bunna' julep, then look no further.£69
