Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 48.4%
Douglas Laing's exceptionally laudable upbeat Cheers to Better Days miniseries continues with this 2009 Benrinnes, a single refill hogshead (yum) bottled as a 12-year-old under the Old Particular label.
This refill hoggie 12-year-old Benrinnes will be a fascinating dram for anyone who's only tried the sherried Flora & Fauna edition, and with its hopeful message this Cheers to Better Days dram would be the perfect place to start exploring the unsherried side of Benrinnes.
