Douglas Laing – Blair Athol 25 yo – Festival Notes

From the guys at Douglas Laing we had the pleasure of tasting the Blair Athol single cask bottling of their XOP Series (Xtra Old Particular) Distilled in June 1989 and bottled in October 2014 out of a refill hogshead with reference DL 10440.

Matured for 25 years it was a sweet, fruity, spice, and delicious dram. Really lovely.
Bottled at cask strength and has a really nice finish on it. The palate is fresh and fruity and just really wonderful.
Wishing I could make notes on the spot better at festivals like this where we cant sample, so we can make better notes on it. But Whisky Live The Hague was very much fun, the most important thing and this dram was a real hit.
