Whisky innovators Douglas Laing today announced 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.

The leading purveyor and creator of the finest Scotch whiskies places innovation at the heart of its thinking, especially when it comes to using design. We have more on the company in our latest edition available online.

Talking about the latest releases, owner Fred Laing said: “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”.
