Insider knowledge: Royal Lochnagar 23 Year Old 1984 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Royal Lochnagar 23 Year Old 1984 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Lots of stewed fruit notes, also hints of cinnamon, chili, barley and orange zest.
Palate: Opens on big grilled orange with caramelised sugar. Hints of sweet oak, barley, acacia honey, a touch of spice.
