52 Year Old Xtra Old Particular
- Single Grain Scotch Whisky
- Douglas Laing
A very-long-aged whisky from Douglas Laing, bottled as part of the eXtra Old Particular range. Distilled at Invergordon in October 1965 and bottled from a single refill barrel in June 2018 at an impressive 52 years old, this shows quite how elegant and refined grain whisky can get – sweet and delicate with fruit and toffee notes.
Invergordon 1965 Reviews
The nose is wonderfully full and fresh still – full of a rich bourbon-like sweetness. The palate hits the sweet spot with vanilla essence, candy floss and sugared cereal. While the finish shows fruity toffee ahead of the gentlest spices.
