Invergordon 53 Year Old XOP, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Douglas Laing's XOP (Xtra Old Particular) is the best of the best from the Douglas Laing family vaults. This range of rare aged Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch Whiskies is bottled exactly the way the distiller intended: without colouring or chill-filtration, and at cask strength. This expression, from Invergordon grain distillery, has spent 53 long years maturing in a refill hogshead. 121 bottles were filled from this cask.
Nose: Cinnamon rolls, citrus blossom, old oak furniture and a bit of banana bread.
Palate: Brioche dipped in coffee, crumbly fudge and candied peels.
Finish: Strawberry jam, melted butter, a slow build of dry baking spices.
