    Description

    We are thrilled to unveil the latest release in our specialist, super-premium series within the Xtra Old Particular brand – The XOP Black Series.

    Packaged in a luxury gift box with gold foil detail, each bottling is drawn from single cask, proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration and at natural cask strength. The individually-numbered bottle features a heavily-embossed, metallised logo, and each gift box contains an individual certificate, hand-signed by Fred and Cara Laing.

    This expression is from the now-closed Port Ellen Distillery, and has silently slumbered in a Refill Butt since it was distilled in December 1979. Only 299 bottles are available globally at a Natural Cask Strength of 49.6%.

  • Tasting Notes

    Brown sugar, subtle peat & big hitting spices

    Nose Like a gently burnt scone initially, followed by the softest peated barley and brown sugar
    Palate Shows an eclectic mix of fudge, spices, chewed leather, more subtle peat and a saline quality with late coal dust and ash
    Finish Amplifies all those earlier subtleties with the emphasis on big hitting spices, smoke, iodine and phenolic charm (FHL)
