Lowland Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 49.6%
A long-aged 30-year-old Cameronbridge 1991 single grain whisky bottled at cask strength without colouring or chill filtration by Douglas Laing for their XOP Extra Old Particular series.
This XOP Cameronbridge 1991 40-year-old spent its days in Cask DL15726, a refill hogshead that yielded a nice round 250 bottles at its natural strength of 49.6%. Cameronbridge's whisky is most famous as being marketed in a fancy blue bottle as the dreary Haig Club; this cask strength 30-year-old will be an entirely different experience, rich and sweet and bursting with flavour.
