GIRVAN 25 ans 1989 D.Laing 51,3%
Single Grain, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: 19881A
Girvan 1989 25 Year Old is a single grain whisky aged in a single second-fill bourbon cask. Bottled at 51.5%, without chill filtration or added colouring, it is a mellow, spicy whisky marked by aromas of ginger, grains, coffee and pepper. The finish becomes sweeter with notes of honey and vanilla. This expression inaugurates the selection of single grain whiskies in the Old Particular range from independent bottlers Douglas Laing & Co.

- The brand
The Girvan grain distillery was built by William Grant & Sons in 1963 on the site of a Second World War munitions factory. Ayrshire, just next to Girvan port, was the perfect place for a distillery: large quantities of grain could be shipped to the port and Loch Penwhappel provided all the necessary water. The first still that was installed, known as ‘No.1 Apps’, continues to produce excellent quality whisky.
Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.
Launched in October 2013, Old Particular Single Cask is a series of single malts that have been individually selected from the best producers across all regions of Scotland. It is ‘particular’ in that it offers authentic whiskies, without chill filtering or the addition of colouring, which give them a richer aromatic profile due to the fatty acids and enzymes that are naturally present after distillation. Exceptionally, Douglas Laing is offering single casks at 48.4% for whiskies up to the age of 18 years-old and 51.5% for malt whiskies that have been aged for 19 years, all presented in an elegant box worthy of the finest Scottish single malts.
