Douglas Laing Old Particular (distilled at Dalmore) 17 year old cask #0080, 54.8%

Price: $152 Issue: Summer 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This Dalmore single cask variant was distilled in October 1996 and filled into a refill hogshead, which yielded 139 bottles in January 2014. Freshly-mown hay, then marzipan and nectarines on the well-spiced nose. Nutty caramel in time. The palate features Terry's chocolate orange, vanilla, and nutmeg. Citrus fruits and malt in the finish, with hazelnuts and a hint of oak.£90
