The Epicurean (Douglas Laing)
Recently announced by Douglas Laing and Co is the 5th addition to their Remarkable Regional malts range of blended malts.
This dram is a blended lowland malt featuring malts from both East and West of the Country and with my love for lowland whiskies i was really interested in this one.
This is indeed an interesting dram with many of the characteristics that you would expect from a Lowland Lady but with an edge that makes it interesting and exciting, some fizzy sherbet notes on the nose and waxiness on the palate this really is yet another great addition to the range.
I also tried this in the signature cocktail serve with lemon, bitters and Dry ginger and it was fabulously refreshing, with fizz and spice, that works really well, and one that would be a great summer BBQ drink.
Thanks again to Douglas Laing for the official sample.
Initially some citrus fruit sherbet dib dabs and creamola foam fizziness, some grassiness and light fresh fruits, oak leaf sauce and a splash of pine air freshener and those lemon & lime travel sweets.
Light sweet grassy and quite tangy, citrus fruit peel and pith, melon peel waxiness and a sweet gentle oakiness that comes through and becomes almost spicy.
Tangy and oaky quite a decent length
