Douglas Laing The Epicurean Blended Malt
The Lowland Blended Malt from Douglas Laing's RRM Series
"In a tipple of our Small Batch “The Epicurean”, you can bet on a nose that is barley-rich, citric, floral and herbal. The mouth-coatingly sweet palate displays crunched sugar, burnt citrus, mixed spices, thyme, peaches and hard candy… All charmingly underpinned and enriched in the finish with more of that earlier herbal character, in a gristy style with almonds, cut grass and burnt sugar."
Douglas Laing are still truly a family business. Today they rest in the talented hands of the magnificently moustachioed Fred Hamilton Laing, the second generation to be at the helm. They produce a wide range of whiskies, from their Remarkable Regional Malts series (probably the best introduction to Scotch Whisky there is) to the old and rare malt and grain whiskies of their Old Particular range.
