Bunnahabhain 17yr Old Particular (Douglas Laing) Review

Bunnahabhain 17yr Old Particular (Douglas Laing) Another independent Bunnahabhain this time from Bottlers Douglas Laing, this 17 Year Old from the Old Particular range is one I was keen on trying.

There’s a hint of sweet chalky smoke in here, then a lovely cinnamon spiced treacle tart note that goes right the way through this dram, along with a chocolate vermicelli note that I really like.

This is a really tasty interesting example, and one to keep an eye out for.

Sold out at Master of Malt and everywhere else i could see, keep an eye out for more releases.

Thanks to Douglas Laing for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


A prickle of cinnamon spiced treacle tarts, Bramley apple peel, a hint of chocolate vermicelli, touches of smoked cream and balsamic vinegar and beetroot chutney.


Sweet and chalky smoke, smoked talcum powder, those lightly spiced treacle tarts are back again with chocolate vermicelli and that beetroot chutney with balsamic vinegar


Balsamic vinegar, chalky smoke, long lasting
