Douglas Laing Single Minded Speyside 15 year old, 46%

Price: $88 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

A broad and humid aroma, like walking through hot bracken in the summer. Quite substantial, with lemon, pecan, and, in time, chestnut. It's this last aroma that carries through most strongly onto the tongue. There's light grip, and even at 46% some level of heat. Water reveals oak and pencil shavings/cedar, while the grip has now loosened. Out comes a more crisp attack and hints of delicate top notes. The finish is pretty dry.£56
