A single grain from the well-known Port Dundas Distillery – but this time independently bottled for the Old Particular range by Douglas Laing.
The whisky was distilled in July 2004, and bottled in December 2020 after a finishing period in a Pedro Ximénez sherry butt. At 16 years of age, the whisky was bottled up at 54.1% ABV, with an outturn of just 343 bottles.
Nose: Sherried spices and tangy green apple sweeties, plus some toasted brown sugar warmth.
Palate: Apricot pastries, gingerbread with icing, more orchard fruit and another kick of festive spice.
Finish: Chocolatey on the finish, with a smidge of charred oak.
