GlenBurgie 12 Year Old Douglas Laing Old Particular
The Glenburgie distillery was first founded as the Kilnflat Distillery in 1810 by William Paul. Production did not begin until almost twenty years later. Following closure in 1870, the distillery reopened in 1878. It was licensed to Charles Hay under the name Glenburgie-Glenlivet.
Ballantine’s status as the second largest seller in the world accounts for the fact that Glenburgie’s sightings as a single malt are as infrequent as those of the Loch Ness monster. Allied only bottled it once and Chivas Bros. has only ever included it in its limited edition Cask Strength series (which are only available through the firms’ distillery visitors' centres). It very occasionally pops up as an independent bottling
