XOP Anniversary - Port Ellen 40 Year Old
One of Douglas Laing's 75th Anniversary Single Cask releases, this is a 40 year old single malt from the long-closed, legendary Port Ellen Distillery on Islay.
As part of Douglas Laing's 75th Anniversary celebrations, they are launching 6 exceptionally rare, aged Single Casks. Each bottle will be cosseted within a Diamond shaped, embellished, luxury gift box.
Within the gift box will be a beautifully presented 700 mL bottle adorned with metal labels and a premium booklet / certificate hand-signed by Fred Laing and Cara Laing.
For this specialist offering, and to ensure the ultimate whisky drinking moment, we have partnered with glass artisan Richard Brendon who is renowned for classic, genuinely hand-crafted crystal glassware.
Nose: The nose opens sugary sweet ahead of a citric, oceanic, beachy and warm cereal backdrop.
Palate: The mouth-puckeringly salty palate is so Islay in style with bonfire ash, smoking peat and coal dust.
Finish: Catch smoke on the finish with soft chewed leather, chimney soot and a phenolic creosote style.
