Girvan 25yr Old Particular (Douglas Laing)
I was lucky enough to try a number of Girvan drams not long ago so I was excited to try this bottling from Douglas Laing also.
This new range of single grains is right up my street, after the Clan Denny 9 Year Old Strathclyde I'm even more excited about the possibilities in this range also.
Filled with chocolatey orange bitter and citrus notes on the nose and a chocolate laced cappuccino on the palate this is seriously drinkable stuff and well worth sourcing a bottle of.
Thanks to Douglas Laing for the official sample.
Really tangy orange zest, very bitter dark chocolate orange, quite a bready note which is lightly toasted, some creamy coffee also.
A chocolatey coffee, light though, almost cappuccino or macchiato, some melon and fresh kiwi
A little heat on the finish but still sweet
