Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Douglas Laing - Old Malt Cask 60It’s Sunday so let’s have a break from the Feis Ile bottlings and give you some news.

In celebration of their sixtieth anniversary since the launch in 1949, independent bottler Douglas Laing is releasing a series of 6 limited edition bottlings, one for each decade. They are single casks in a special retro version of the Old Malt Cask bottle design. This is the line-up:

  • • Macallan 30yo (rum finish)
  • • Laphroaig 21yo (refill sherry)
  • • Speyside Finest 40yo (Glenfarclas)
  • • Port Ellen 30yo (gimme gimme!)
  • • Glen Grant 30yo (sherry matured)
  • • Macallan 20yo (sherry finish)

Douglas Laing will release one bottling a month, from June until November 2009.
