Douglas Laing Old Particular (distilled at Cambus) 25 year old 1991, 62%

Price: $80 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A single cask from a refill hoggie, this bursts with vanilla fudge, cracked peppercorn, wood shavings, and apple strudel. Incredibly fruity, with mouth-watering gummy bears, tangy orange, and dried pineapple, evolving from sweet fruits through to banana chews. Diluting down from its considerable cask strength only pumps up the juiciness. To conclude, a long, creamy finish like a banana shake. Evidently, terrific cask selection at work.
