Highland Park 17 Year Old, Old Particular (Douglas Laing)
This Highland Park 17 Year Old, Old Particular was tasted back in April 2014 on a visit to Douglas Laing HQ in Glasgow.
Oily, sweet, and full of malty goodness this was another Neil (@neilmackinnon1)'s favourites and one that I absolutely adored.
Sadly seems to be sold out everywhere so if you see it grab it.
Thanks again to Douglas Laing for having us over at their HQ and to Jan (@whiskyjan) for taking us through the whiskies.
Beginning with some lovely oily sweetness before it becomes malty, with barley sugar sweets and gentle licks of smoke from a kindling fire, this is so up my street
Sweet, smoky, fruity, malted loaf and barley sugars, oh my delicious
hints of smoke linger with barley sugars
