North British / Douglas Laing

North British 50Yr Directors Cut (Douglas Laing) Review

North British 50 Year Old Douglas Laing Special - a word used a little too often in my opinion but this whisky is most definitely Special. I managed to sample this as part of the half Time Orange arrangements at The Whisky Fringe and knew the instant i put it to my nose it was special.

Bottled by Douglas Laing this North British 1962 (yup 50 Years old) Directors Cut is still popping out at 57.1% from the Cask which is brilliant and it just shines, i cannot recommend this whisky enough.

This Amazing Whisky is available from The Whisky Barrel

Tasting Notes & Details


Dewy grass, distinctive grain with light fresh notes and slight underlying wood, so light and fresh, almost mint and fresh leaves


sweet toffee apples and lush dewy covered grass with mint sprigs


lush lasting grassy notes with light wood and superbly smooth for 57%
