Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 48.4%
How splendid, a refill sherry butt of Bowmore with a good amount of ageing on it - look at that lovely colour. This particular butt was from the 2002 vintage and was bottled by Douglas Laing for the Old Particular series at the back end of 2020 (see what I did there).
Even at Douglas Laing's preferred drinking strength of 48.4% this 18 year old refill sherry cask gave up just 284 bottles and we'd be surprised if our share doesn't sell out pretty sharpish. A no-brainer.
|Cask Type||Refill Sherry Butt|
Nose: Stewing fruits with a spiced wood quality give way to a gentle smokiness.
Palate: Sticky plum jam with juicy barley developing to peat smoke with a cinnamon warmth.
Finish: Lingers wonderfully with a marmalade tang plus charred oak and creamy toffee.
