1988 Douglas Laing & Co. XOP Xtra Old Particular Cambus 30 Year Old Single Cask Limited Release Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (700ml) - 46%
Another well-priced and well-aged collectible single grain from Douglas Laing's latest outturn is this venerable Cambus. Consistently on collector's radars, these releases routinely sell out. Distilled in September 1988, just five years before the operation closed for good, after 30 long years in a single refill hogshead, 336 hand-filled bottles were released as part of the Xtra Old Particular series in August 2019. Laing's notes read: "A waft of burnt sugar followed by candied orange, boiled sweets and fresh wood shavings. On the palate, sweet biscuits with vanilla essence and creamy fudge. The finish brings a tingly spiciness plus a warm home baking quality." And yes, at 46% this is natural cask strength. Non chill filtered. Very limited stocks.
