Insider knowledge: North Of Scotland 38 Years Old 1973 - The Clan Denny (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be North Of Scotland 38 Years Old 1973 - The Clan Denny (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
North of Scotland 1973 Bottling Note
This is a grain whisky from the North of Scotland distillery bottled for Douglas Laing's Clan Denny range. Grain whisky is made from un-malted grain and is distilled in a column still. The result is a cheaper (and sweeter)style of whisky which is most often used for blending. However, grain whiskies can be extraordinary when aged for long periods of time.
Sweet notes of caramel and winter spice son the nose lead to a Bourbon-like palate of toffee and cinnamon. The finish is immensely long thanks to the time spent in cask and is vanilla-centred with a little nutmeg.
