85/100 Distiller 83/100 Whisky Base
Gold: Blended Malt No Age Statement 2020 - The Scotch Whisky Masters (The Spirits Business)
Douglas Laing has added to its Remarkable Regional Malts series with the launch of a special edition, The Gauldrons, which literally means 'bay of storms'. This adds to a line that already features Big Peat from Islay, The Epicurean from the Lowlands, Rock Oyster from the country's islands, Scallywag from Speyside and Timorous Beastie from the Highlands.
Thijs Klaverstijn - Distiller "Starting off on malty notes with a waxy layer, batch 4 of The Gauldrons seems to be less sweet than the first batch. The palate is oily and displays soft spices and a faint touch of diesel, but also honeycomb and citrus. This is a lovely representation of that unique Campbeltown DNA."
Nose - Sweet cereals, with a note of iodine and sweet spices.
Palate - It's slightly coastal, with smooth peat and gentle wood spice. A touch of salted caramel is there, as is a little brown sugar and smokey barley.
Finish - Medium finish, with notes of vanilla, robust peat and sea salt.
Douglas Laing has created a cask strength bottling of its The Epicurean blended malt - with a name honouring its home in Glasgow! Made exclusively with malt whiskies from the Lowlands, and references the Duke of Wellington statue's infamous traffic cone hat
