The Epicurean Glasglow Edition Cask Strength (700ml)

The Epicurean Glasglow Edition Cask Strength (700ml)


The unique recipe for the special bottling is the result of a collaboration between Douglas Laing & Co and some of Glasgow?s finest bartenders and spirit experts. A one-off event was held at the firm?s Glasgow HQ in February, during which 8 ?mixology masters? experimented with Lowland Single Malts, each blending their own distinctive creation to be judged by Fred Laing, the second generation in the family business.

The resulting Whisky is bursting with zesty citrus, green fruits and sweet nuttiness, proclaiming to be ?certainly a little bigger, more urban than other Lowlanders?. Bottled at 58.6% alcohol strength and offered without colouring or chill-filtration, its high strength is said to ensure the natural robust character of the city spirit shines through ? even when mixed.

Tasting Notes:

Nose:?Fresh barley and zesty lemon top notes, backed up by a whiff of peppery rye bread.

Palate:?Heavy with vanilla and Victoria sponge cake. Grassy at points. Mint leaf herbaceousness.

Finish:?Subtly chocolatey on the finish.

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 (a frequent sight in Glasgow). While it retains a lot of its classic Lowland-style elegance, the bumped-up ABV gives it a punchy flavour profile.
