Douglas Laing Provenance (distilled at Blair Athol) 12 year old, 46%

Price: $63.00 Issue: Winter 2012 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This 12 year old example of Diageo's Perthshire single malt has been matured in a sherry butt and features milk chocolate, malt, and digestive biscuits on the nose; becoming fruitier, notably with lemon curd. The palate is rich, sweet, and spicy, with barley, honey, and white grapes. Vanilla and spicy orange marmalade in the medium-length finish. £40
