The Premier Barrel Old Particular Dailuaine 10-Year-Old was matured in a single sherry cask that yielded just 602 bottles at 46% abv.

 

From the producer:

"Traditionally, scintillatingly and satiatingly sherried, seek its swirl of syrupy sugarplum and supporting celestial spices - copiously crammed with ambrosially captivating candy, fabulously fructiferous fruitcake and a generous gusto of ginerbread."

 

One of Diageo's workhorse distilleries; Dailuaine was founded in 1851 in Speyside. Dailuaine was the first distillery in Scotland to feature a pagoda roof, an architectural element that gained a lot of traction thereafter. Long fermentation, fast distillation and (historically) the use of stainless steel in their condensers, creates a heavy, meaty spirit that works incredibly well with sherry cask maturation.

 

An IB with some history; Douglas Laing's was founded in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing and remains independently, family-owned to this day.

For the past 70 years they have operated with the philosophy that whisky should be presented as the distiller intended, with no artifical colouring and no chill filtration. This remains true today as the family, now in its third generation, pursues distilling, blending and independent bottling.

The Premier Barrel series feature exquisite single cask single malts from around Scotland presented in whimsical ceramic decanters inspired by "the good old days" of the Victorian music halls.
