Douglas Laing Old Particular (distilled at Port Dundas) 25 year old 1990, 51.5%

Price: $129 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Squished rosehip, nuttiness, and seasoned wood, but there is little else of note on this one. The palate has corn sweetness, red fruits, pomegranate, cherry lips, and descends into soor ploom territory with more oak wood. The finish continues the woody theme with a residual baked apple note. Port Dundas can be wonderful to drink, but with no shortage of good to great grain whisky on the market, I feel this one is past its best. (258 bottles) £90
