Laphroaig from Douglas Laing […]

It’s been a long time since we had here Laphroaig ;), recently it appeared on the blog in August – it was 10 years old from 70s. Therefore, it is time for the next one. Today also quite unusual, because of independent bottler - Douglas Laing from a series of Old Particular. It was released to celebrate the Feis Ile 2015. Distillation in February 2001, bottling in February 2015. Single cask - refill butt - a total of 636 bottles with 48.4% ABV. Of course, natural color and no chill filtration. I bought this bottle while my last visit to Islay in the capital city of Bowmore. Douglas Laing is an interesting independent bottler, while Whisky Live Warsaw in 2015 I participated in their Masterclass, I have very fond memories form that event, then I tasted Laphroaig 25 years old. On the blog there is Laphroaig 1998/2013 from another independent bottler - Samaroli. Im very curious what this bottle hides, therefore, let’s get to work.

    from Douglas Laing

    When describing Bruichladdich Port Charlotte An Turas Mor I was glad that each producing distillery from Islay is represented on the blog. But the joy was premature, because I forgot about Caol Ila. I do not know how it happened, I probably thought I had written about it. Caol Ila was established in 1846.
