New Release / Announcing the Launch of Douglas Laings Latest XOP Releases

31/10/2015 Announcing the Launch of Douglas Laings Latest XOP Releases

Announcing the Launch of Douglas Laings Latest XOP Releases Douglas Laing & Co., leading purveyor and creator of the finest Scotch Whiskies, today announces the release of seven particularly special XOP Single Cask Whiskies, including the firm’s oldest ever Port Ellen Distillery release bottled at 36 Years Old.

Fred Laing says “Each month, we hand select casks from our vaults when we believe they have reached their peak of perfection, and bottle them under our Provenance, Old Particular and XOP brands. It’d be fair to say that Single Casks are our bread and butter, but we never let ourselves forget just how special it is to bottle these Whiskies exactly as the distiller intended – straight from the cask, without chill-filtering or adding colouring, and at natural cask strength. We don’t often shout about these releases, but with a leathery Port Ellen aged for 36 glorious years, a wonderfully treacle-y Strathmill 32 Years Old and a duo of particularly sweetly vanilla’d old and rare Grain Whiskies among our latest collection, we felt it’d be rude not to share”.

The complete assembly of recent XOP releases is as follows:

From Islay
Port Ellen 36 Years Old, 56.6%
Bruichladdich 26 Years Old, 52.1%

From Speyside
Auchroisk 25 Years Old, 55.4%

The XOP range launched in 2014, and has become home to the oldest, finest and rarest Whiskies from the Laing family stocks. Since then, Fred Laing has proudly and meticulously hand-selected the XOP casks, accepting nothing less than perfection for the brand he calls the “Douglas Laing Family Jewels”.

The latest XOP releases are available now from specialist Whisky retailers globally and
