Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
By my count, this is the seventy-eighth Port Ellen bottling from the various guises of Douglas Laing (including OMC, Platinum Series & McGibbons) that we have stocked since the turn of the century - an average of almost one a month. That is a phenomenal record.

Tasting Notes:
Bottler's Tasting Notes

On the nose it is literally a breath of sea air, with a hint of Caledonian MacBrayne's ferry as a back drop, plus distinct heathery peat heading to a sweet and smokey oakiness.

Initially dry, ashy and salty on the palate, this moves through a gristy sweet barley phase to something more creosoted at its tail - and this runs really long at the finish which is tarry too, moving late onto a dry, spiced, ashy (again) style.
