Douglas Laing words certificated:
Douglas Laing & Co proudly offers this fine example of the best Distiller’s art as a special selection from our oldest stocks of whisky. No water is added to reduce its strength, as the angel’s share has already taken care of that. No caramel colouring is added, so you can see its pure natural colour. 
We have chosen to bottle this Malt without chill-filtration in the old fashioned and traditional style. By so doing, we leave in all the Distillers’ preferred qualities apparent on the nose, palate and finish – self evident when you remove the cork. As you can see on the label, this is one bottle of a very restricted offering, which one consumed, cannot ever be repeated by us.
