A second old 50 year old North British grain whisky from Douglas Laing's Directors' Cut range, following up their 1961 vintage from earlier in 2012 with a 1962. This has been bottled from a single refill butt at a solid cask strength of 57.1%.Tasting Notes (1)
50 Year Old
No of Bottles
Tasting notes by Billy A
Almost a hint of sulphur - a slightly struck- match meatiness. That's at the back though, hidden by sweet grapes, sultanas, vanilla, a light almond nuttiness, hints of marzipan, brown sugar, green wood and polished wooden boards.
Lighter than the nose suggests with a balanced dryness, some old wood sourness, sugary sweetness, freshly seasoned cedar cigar boxes, some vegetal notes, dark liquorice and lingering spice.
Freshly cut boards, rich dry fruit, cloves and woody spice.
This tastes old but holds that age well - lots of wood, but it's all good. There's a bit of a sawdusty hint from time to time, but in the main it's rich fruit and polished boards. It also hides its strength - at 57.1% you'd expect a kick, but it never comes. An impressive old dram, although dominated by wood.
