Douglas Laing lancerer The Epicurean

Så er Douglas Laing klar med femte og sidste aftapning i deres Remarkable Regional Malts serie.

The EpicureanDouglas Laings Remarkable Regional Malts serie inkluderer allerede Timorous Beastie (Highlands), Scallywag (Speyside), Rock Oyster (Islands) og Big Peat (Islay), men der har ikke været nogen repræsentant for Lowlands indtil nu, hvor de lancerer The Epicurean.

The Epicurean omtales som en dram, der er “city born and bred” og så kan vi nok regne med at den blandt andet består af Auchentoshan, som ligger tæt på Glasgow og Glenkinchie, som ligger tæt på Edinburgh.

Den nye aftapning består primært af whisky, der har lagret på tidligere bourbonfade. Den er tappet ved 46,2% og den er naturligvis hverken koldfiltreret eller farvet. Ligesom de andre aftapninger i serien, så har den ingen aldersdeklaration.

Officielle smagsnoter fra destilleriet:

Nose: The nose that is barley rich, citric, floral and herbal.

Palate: The mouth-coatingly sweet palate displays crunched sugar, burnt citrus, mixed spices, thyme, peaches and hard candy.

Finish: More of that earlier herbal character, in a gristy style with almonds, cut grass and burnt sugar.

Fred Laing, Managing Director hos Douglas Laing udtaler:

Back in 1930s Glasgow, The Epicurean, as everyone knew him, was the life and soul of any party. Wherever he popped in for a dram, you’d find him surrounded by a circle of admirers, regaling them with captivating tales of derring-do, of chance encounters in foreign climes and of the fine food and drink he feasted upon his travels. Our new expression is in honour of that roguish character who never fails to deliver charm, charisma and just a little bit of cheek. Any likeness to Douglas Laing’s Managing Director is purely coincidental! The Epicurean, our Lowland “Vatted” Malt joins Timorous Beastie from the Highlands, Scallywag from Speyside, Rock Oyster from the Islands and Big Peat from Islay to complete our Remarkable Regional Malts collection.

The Epicurean kommer på markedet her i april og prisen ligger på £37 i Storbritannien.
