Douglas Laing Old Particular (distilled at Tamdhu) 16 year old, 46%

Price: $101 Issue: Summer 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Pale straw. The nose is very draff-like/sweet mash, then green herbal notes, reminiscent of angelica. The palate remains light and slightly hot on the tongue, with some cereal and a certain fatness. Water brings out a little more from the cask. A delicate and pleasant enough dram, but I'm slightly bemused as to why it's being bottled at this age when there's clearly so much more to give.£69
