Girvan 20 Year Old single grain Lowland Scotch whiskey. 1993 vintage refill barrel #10439 bottled 2014 by Douglas Laing for the Clan Denny series.
Opens sweetly on the nose, superbly vanilla’d, carrying a creamy custard character with toffee. Still sweet on the palate, now with spicy honey & butterscotch, running to more vanilla. The finish is very more’ish, replicating the nose & palate, now with candied orange.
Girvan Single Grain Whiskey
Girvan Distillery is a Scottish Lowland grain whiskey distillery situated on the Ayrshire coast. It looks out to the island of Ailsa Craig the source of granite from which curling stones are shaped. William Grant and Sons Ltd opened this distillery in 1963 to supply grain whiskey to their blends of scotch but with careful maturation in quality casks Girvan is also able to produce excellent single grain whiskies.
