Douglas Laing Remarkable Regional Malts 5 x 5cl
The Remarkable Regional Malts are the ultimate distillation of Scotland's Malt Whisky regions; each bottling embodies the overarching characteristics of the region it is sourced from. If a Single Malt is a violin, a Blended Malt is an entire orchestra! Feeling indecisive? This gift pack offers the chance to sample each Remarkable Regional Malt in miniature format.
The Epicurean Lowland Malt Scotch Whisky - In a tipple of the 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.
Timorous Beastie Highland Malt Scotch Whisky - Overridingly sweet on the nose, then warming to floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones. The palate opens in a spicy style with fructiferous notes of raisin and a sugary, fudgey character. The finish is subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue.
Scallywag Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky - The nose is rich with spices and delicious vanilla.The palate shows layer on layer of sweet stewed fruit, Christmas pudding and dark chocolate infused with nutmeg and cinnamon. The finish shows a burst of zesty orange with sweet tobacco, cocoa and fruit cake.
Rock Oyster Island Malt Scotch Whisky - Anticipate wave soaked rocks and a salty oceanic, fresh influence on the nose, followed by an initially subtle palate that carries soft and rather sweet peat paralleled with smoke, honey, damp ash and develops with liquorice and late pepper. The maritime quality is neatly replicated on the long, moreish finish.
Big Peat Islay Malt Scotch Whisky - The nose opens fresh, salty and clean, and develops to malted barley dried over peat. A damp, earthy character that’s immediately punchy. On the palate you’ll detect ashes, sweet tar, beaches and smoking chimneys. The finish is long and salty, tangy liquorice, smoke and yet more bonfire ashes.
