Carsebridge Douglas Laing 1976 43YO Xtra Old Particular 700ml 50.7%
A bottling of long-aged grain whisky that's special enough to have earned a place in Douglas Laing's Xtra Old Particular series. Aged in a single refil hogshead (DL13717), this abounds with notes of vanilla, rich caramel and dried apricot.
Carsebridge was closed in 1983, just seven years after this whisky was distilled.
Sweetly waxed immediately on the nose with cedar wood, rose water and hard candy
Palatewise there is early ginger biscuit and burnt orange followed by treacle toffee and toasted marshmallow - All neatly replicated on the rather "homebaked" finish (FHL).
