Douglas Laing unveil the penultimate release in their Consortium of Cards series: Old Particular The Crackerjack Port Dundas 28 Year Old .

Old Particular Consortium of Cards The Crackerjack Port Dundas 28 Year OldIndependent bottler Douglas Laing & Co has unveiled the penultimate release in its Old Particular "Consortium of Cards" series. This time we are being dealt an Old Particular The Crackerjack Port Dundas 28 Year Old single grain whisky which is adorned by the Jack of Hearts.

The Crackerjack is the third of four planned bottlings in the specialist Single Cask series this year, like the prevoius releases in the series it has been bottled at 50% ABV.

The Crackerjack Port Dundas 28 Year Old joins the earlier releases in the Consortium of Cards series; a Laphroaig 18 Years Old named “Queen of the Hebrides” and a Ben Nevis 20 Years Old, entitled “King of the Hills”.

Cara Laing, third generation in the family firm, comments: "As a self-confessed sweet tooth, this antique Port Dundas spirit is truly a dream dram. Its sherbety nose hints at the vanilla toffee and rich molasses palate, and runs to an indulgent finish packed with cappuccino, crushed nuts and maple syrup. The Port Dundas Distillery, in our home town of Glasgow, closed almost 10 years ago, so it’s a real privilege and pleasure for us to release this finite, charming whisky".

As well as this single grain whisky from the now closed Port Dundas distillery, Douglas Laing have also revealed a mouth watering line up of Old Particular bottlings in their latest outturn line-up of Old Particular bottlings, including the following, amongst others:
  • Strathclyde 11 Year Old Single Grain, finished in a Sherry butt, bottled at 55.5% ABV and shows rich molasses, mouth-coating coffee and a caramelised nutty character.
  • Auchentoshan 18 Years Old cask, which displays an "American Cream Soda" character, with a yield of just 251 bottles.
  • Glen Keith 21 Year Old, distilled in 1995 and bottled at 21 Year Old, is said to offer a taste of "Grandma’s lemon meringue pie".
  • Allt-a-Bhainne 16 Years Old, Sherry-matured, "bursting with macerated fruit, sweet citrus and long spices".
  • Bruichladdich 12 Year Old, showing a coffee character with lemon peel and biscuit.

As always Old Particular is bottle without colouring or chill-filtration, and at a decent alcohol strength, in order to deliver an experience akin to sampling straight from the cask in a distillery warehouse.

All these Old Particular bottlings, including "The Crackerjack" Port Dundas 28 Year Old, will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
