Strathmill 32yo XOP by Douglas Laing

A whisky from Douglas Laing quickly calling another one, here is one more for a tasting that has surpassed, until this day, almost all tastings i’ve had. This 32 year old Strathmill (51.0% – cask n° DL 10912) is part of their very nice collection X.O.P. (for Xtra Old Particular) which counts some wonderful whiskys and this is one of them!

Timorous Beastie 18yo by Douglas Laing

Timorous Beastie (46.8%) is what we call a vatted malt, basically it’s a luxury blend of single malts from different distilleries of quality. It comes from the excellent independent bottler Douglas Laing (you will read more about him here, believe me, you’ll only ask for that). The “purists” that pretend that the single malt is the only real good whisky will have to accept the idea that today (and for some years in fact) some people make very (very) good blends.
