    ABV: 48.4%
    Tasting notes: [15ml sample] Distilled in 2004 and bottled by Douglas Laing after 15 years in a refill hogshead. Shy on the nose but rallies in the mouth with an impressive build up of sweet barley, toasted sponge cake flavours and reverberating spices. Good weight and balance. Lives up to its reputation as one of the denser malts going around. 328 bottles. 48.4% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. Very limited stocks.

    Notes from the bottlers... The Laings describe this as having nicely spiced aromas with autumnul fruits and melifluous sweet barley. The palate opens sweetly with more spices, plus sugary coffee followed by loads of late spice.
