    • Finish
      Wood! Where is the rest? then it slowly becomes pleasant, then when the bitterness has disappeared.

  4. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Matured in a single cask Refill Hogshead (ex bourbon) which yielded only 117 bottles.

    All of the Douglas Laing Director`s Cut bottlings are of high quality and this 40 year old is very affordable.
