The Old Malt Cask range was first created by Douglas Laing back in 1999 as their flagship range of single cask bottlings. More recently it has shifted to the Hunter Laing portfolio after the company split. The core principles of the range, however, remain unchanged. All bottlings are single cask, all are bottled at 50% abv, unless the natural cask strength has fallen below this mark. All bottlings are non-chillfiltered and bottled without the addition of caramel colouring. There have been some remarkable whiskies bottled in this range over the years. Early glories such as the 1952 Glenlochy, 1960 Bunnahabhains and later bottlings of 1971 Clynelish and 1969 Port Ellen at great ages are all highly sought after and now very difficult to find. There have been spectacular examples from numerous distilleries; 1971 Brora, 1967 Ardbeg - as well as a multitude of other terrific Ardbeg single casks - likewise Port Ellen has featured strongly in the range over the years. Today there are still often forgotten gems which appear, bottlings such as 1970 Glen Ord and 1966 Banff don’t show up very often but are very popular when they do. Today the range remains popular and continues to bottle excellent single cask malt whiskies at the very quaffable strength of 50%.
