Independent Scotch whisky bottler Douglas Laing has revealed a collection of four single cask bottlings to be released throughout 2017 – the first limited edition range under its Old Particular brand.
The Old Particular Consortium of Cards collection kicks off with an 18-year-old Laphroaig, called Queen of the Hebrides.
Bottled at 50% abv, the peated single malt whisky has been matured in a single refill ex-Sherry butt and is non-chill-filtered.
Only 665 bottles, each decorated with the specially commissioned ‘Queen of the Hebrides’ illustration, will be available to purchase from specialist whisky retailers around the world for approximately £165.
The expression is one of 20 single cask releases from Douglas Laing during the first quarter of 2017, featuring 15 single cask malt whiskies including an Old Particular Glen Grant 21 Year Old, and five single cask grains including a 25-year-old Cameronbridge.
