The “big brother” to the Old Particular range, Xtra Old Particular. XOP bottlings represent the Douglas Laing “family jewels”. We reserve the most spectacular and unique Single Casks from the family stocks to be released under this label. Each expression, presented in a luxurious wooden box, carries a heavy-weight glass stopper and individually numbered certificate and label, honouring the antique Single Malt or Single Grain it carries.
The nose is big, fragrant and immediately malted, honeyed and redolent and sweetie shops and ice cream parlours. The palate is feisty with warming spices, gingery with a cinnamon twist ahead of its typical Speyside malt flair, with a finish that neatly reflects the qualities of its palate.
