Douglas Laing - The Epicurean Cognac Cask (Lowland Remarkable Regional Malt)
The second in Douglas Laings special wood cask releases of the Epicurean, their Lowland vatted malt. Already full of light grassy and citrus notes typical of the region, this finish from a cognac barrel adds the classic schnapps notes and earthy grape body from the classic French spirit. The nose opens in a tropical style with figs, peaches, ginger, coconut and lychee. The palate shows sweet Scottish barley, honeysuckle, violet and rose. The long finish displays a dried orange quality with brioch, sandalwood and more of that earlier fiery ginger.
