One of a kind
Douglas Laing’s XOP is the “big brother” to Old Particular (Extra Old Particular, if you will). We reserve the very best of our stocks for this range of aged and rare, premium whiskies. The Douglas Laing “family jewels”, each XOP release is one of a kind, and truly spectacular. Packaged in a luxurious, wooden hinged gift box, XOP’s wax-dipped bottle and individually numbered certificate honours the antique single malt and single grain whisky inside.
Celebrating our 100th birthday
Our founder, Fred Douglas Laing, was born in 1914. 100 years later, we honoured his memory with a commemorative XOP bottling, a 50 Years Old Single Cask of what we believe to be Speyside’s Finest Malt.
This rare Single Cask was bottled after its 50th ‘birthday’ on 18th December 2014 – as you would expect, without colouring or chill-filtration and at natural cask strength of 40.5% alc. The limited edition bottling featured a one-off white and gold screen print, with gold wax dipped cork closure and labels highlighting this 100th anniversary of “FDL”.
Ridiculously fine and rare
XOP is always bottled at natural cask strength, without colouring or chill-filtration, preserving the naturally extraordinary character of these aged to perfection Whiskies.
Bottled from one single cask of Single Malt or Single Grain Scotch Whisky, we typically yield just 200-300 bottles of each expression, making XOP truly limited edition, unique and extraordinary.
