Our Xtra Old Particular range carries only aged and rare Single Cask Scotch Whiskies from some of Scotland’s most acclaimed and celebrated Distilleries, including those that are long-closed. Each one a marvel in its own right, XOP is bottled at Natural Cask Strength, exceptionally old and truly spectacular.
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.
As Natural As It Gets
Each cask selected for Xtra Old Particular is personally curated by Cara and Fred Laing; their tireless commitment to perfection, exceptionally refined palates and unmatched passion for Scotch Whisky combining to ensure each sip is nothing short of extraordinary. Always at Cask Strength and staunchly presented without colouring or chill-filtration, savour every sip of the iconic drop of history offered by XOP.
Explore the Regions by Colour
The climate of each individual Scotch Whisky Region can influence a particular set of characteristics which is reflected in the final spirit. Our regional colours, identifiable on every bottle of XOP, allude to the character within. The herbal, grassy nature of the Lowlands is depicted as green, and the heathery Highlands as purple. The rich, Sherried (and sometimes fiery) Speyside is represented by red, whilst the maritime island of Islay is shown as a sea blue. The sandy shores of Campbeltown are reflected as neutral tones, and the impactfully sweet flavours of a Single Grain are conveyed as jet black.
Extraordinarily rare. Unrivalled quality.
Our XOP Black range carries extraordinarily rare and antiqued Single Cask Scotch Whiskies selected from the Douglas Laing family's private (and closely guarded) collection. Each bottle is filled by hand with each and every label personally hand-signed by Fred and Cara Laing as a seal of authenticity and unrivalled quality.
Our Old Particular Single Casks are a particularly sought-after range of individually-selected Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch Whiskies from all over Scotland.
