Today, Douglas Laing introduced a new range in their premium range XOP, the super-premiuem XOP ”The Black Series”.
Each bottle is filled by hand and features an embossed metallised label, glass stopper and the signatures of Fred and Cara Laing. A black moleskin display and a certificate of authenticity is also a part of the packaging.
The inaugural release is an ex-sherry hogshead from Springbank, distilled in 1994 and matured for over 25 years. Fred Laing’s own tasting notes say: ”this rare Whisky has taken on an exceptionally rich, dark colour, an inviting hint as to dark fruited, subtly smoked, leathery and chocolatey spirit within.”
Cara Laing describes it:
”This Springbank ’black beauty’ is an extraordinary encapsulation of everything our family business proudly represents: Quality, luxury and the utmost attention to detail. The maiden release in this new Single Cask Series certainly sets an exceptionally high benchmark for future bottlings, and we are poised to rise to that challenge!”
