DOUGLAS LAING'S O P “ELEMENTS” SINGLE CASK COLLECTION
The Old Particular Single Cask Collection features four Whiskies each paired with one of the Elements – they were to be available globally from specialist retailers worldwide.
The Old Particular Elements series consists of Craigellachie 12 (fire), a Cameronbridge 27 (air), a Caol Ila 8 (earth) and a Jura 12 (water).
"OUR CASK SELECTION AND PACKAGING DESIGN PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE NATURAL ELEMENTS THAT CONTRIBUTE SO HEAVILY TO THE PRODUCTION OF SCOTCH WHISKY. FROM OAK TREES TO CHARRED CASKS, PEAT AND WATER, THIS SPECIALIST SINGLE CASK COLLECTION WILL CELEBRATE THE ROLE OF THE ELEMENTS OF NATURE IN THE WHISKY-MAKING CYCLE.” Cara Laing, Director of Whiskies, Douglas Laing
The second release in the Old Particular Elements Collection from Douglas Laing was a single grain Scotch whisky produced at the Cameronbridge distillery, the Cameronbridge 27 YO 1991 bottled at 56.5% ABV and paired with “Air”.
The third release was a Caol Ila 8 YO bottled at 58.5% ABV representing the element “Earth”, bottled at natural cask strength without colouring or chill-filtration. This cask was distilled in June 2010 and bottled May 2019.
A 12 YO single malt whisky that is shortly to be released will mark the end of the four-part series: the Jura 12 Years Water Edition with a cask strength of 54.3% ABV. The Jura 12 Years Water Edition was finished in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Butt, which rounded up the Jura whisky’s salty, maritime character with wintery spicy notes and toffee aromas.
