The Epicurean – Lowland Blended Malt Scotch Whisky – Douglas Laing – 0,7 l Bottle

In a tipple of our small Batch 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.

Tripple distilled in Copper Pot Stills and matured first in new, charred custom crafted oak Barrels, this exceptional Bourbon is uniquliy finshed in Sonoma- Cutrer Pinot Noir Barrels.

Lagavulin Limited Edition- 1816 to 2016 – 200th Anniversary – 8 Years Old – 48 % vol. 0,7 l Bottle – Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

” Exceptionally fine” was how illustrious Whisky chronicler, Alfred Barnard, described the Lagavulin 8 Year Old expression he sampled during an 1886 visit to the distillery.

In homage to Lagavulin`s timeless ability to produce exeptional Malts, and in celebration of the distillery`s 200th Anniversary, this is a reinterpretation of the 8 year old from Barnard`s era: available for one year only.

The nose is immediately soft with clean, fresh notes partnering faint hints of milk chocolate and lemon, then develops fragrant tea – scented, smoke alongside nose – drying, maritime Aromas, with subtle cereal.

The palate is light in texture, with a magnificently full-on Lagavulin taste that`s even bigger than you may expect, sweet, smoky and warming, with a growing pungency, then dry, with more smoke.

The finish is lovely: clean, very long and smoky. This is a polished and exquisitly crafted celebration of Lagavuin with smoky -clean Aromas and a mighty tast. Made to mark our bicentenary, it`s a Whisky to celebrate, in every sense.
