Douglas Laing announces their latest release of commemorative Remarkable Regional Malts editions, this one ”With a Twist”. This release is a blended malt consisting of Scotch whisky from each and every whisky region in Scotland.
The blended malt has been matured for 10 years and is bottled at 48% ABV. 5,000 bottles have been produced and the tubes are individually numbered.
It is priced at £59.99 and will be available mid-October in the UK, Europe and selected Asian markets, inc. Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, China and Hong Kong.
Fred Laing, Chairman, comments: “Our 70th Anniversary has been a big occasion for us and one we continue to enjoy celebrating. This latest Limited Edition reflects very much our focus and philosophy to release excellent, artisan Scotch Whiskies expressing some humour in the process, whilst not taking ourselves too seriously. After all, aligned to quality, Scotch Whisky should be fun!”.
On the nose, a sweet, buttery biscuit quality with honeycomb initially developing to rock pools and a salty, seaweed tang. The palate shows mouth-coating milk chocolate alongside orange zest, vanilla’d oak then comes an earthiness with smoked bacon. The fruity finish is packed with stewed fruits and mocha balanced by candied lemon rind, black pepper and malted barley.
