Douglas Laing Old & Rare Platinum Selection.
Rarely seen sherry wood Bunnahabhain - let alone at this age. Single sherry butt distilled May 1974 and bottled November 2010. 206 bottles.
On the nose detect alcohol soaked in fruit – heavily spiced – plus distinct toffee and orange pith aromas. Palatewise it is still massively spiced – with vanilla evident in its fudge which is lightly salted – also lightly peated - carrying attractive and delicate oceanic flavours too. The finish carries ginger, pepper, light oak, black coffee and more marinaded dark fruit.
