Douglas Laing Old Particular (distilled at Glenturret) 1987, 51.5%

Price: $151 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This Glenturret was bottled in Douglas Laing's Old Particular series at 28 years old. After maturation in a single refill hogshead it was released in early 2016. Malt, milk chocolate, and honey on the pleasing, mature, rounded nose. Figs and sultanas develop in time. Smooth and rich on the palate with more malt, cocoa powder, and soft spices. Very long in the finish with quite insistent spice, citrus fruit, cloves, and sweet oak. (168 bottles) £105
