21 Year Old Sherry Cask Platinum Selection
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Douglas Laing
A 1989 vintage whisky from, as of 2011, mothballed distillery Tamdhu, bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Platinum Selection range. Hopefully the distillery will start up production again soon, as it is now under new ownership, but in the meantime it's long aged drams like this that will keep the name going - aged for 21 years in a sherry hogshead and deeply coloured by the experience.

Richy perfumed, spiced, with old furniture polish, burnt orange, cloves and light wood smoke on the nose – move onto an initially dry palate (from its Sherry heritage) which opens over the next few seconds to a spiced and macerated (Rummy?) fruit – almost Gluhwein style. The finish is just so big, rich, spiced, fruited and darkly (Muscovado) sugar in style!
