Douglas Laing The Gauldrons Batch 3

Just in time for Halloween, Douglas Laing has announced the release of The Gauldrons Batch 3, a vatting of Single Malts exclusively from Campbeltown.

Inspired by the eponymous dark sandy coves on Campbeltown's west shores, "The Gauldrons" literally means "bay of storms". The dark and moody packaging features a foil-detailed compass, intricate web and eery spider, which the folks at Douglas Laing tell me coupled with the smoky palate, renders it the perfect dram for Halloween and Autumn months generally.

Cara Laing, Director of Whisky at her family’s business, says "October is now officially upon us, and we are all looking for the bolder flavours of Autumn. With a perfect balance of sweet and peat, our Gauldrons Campbeltown Malt is the perfect accompaniment to a sophisticated Halloween party or sipped around a bonfire with friends."

Launching this month, Douglas Laing's The Gauldrons Batch 3 is non chill-filtered, naturally coloured and has been bottled at 46.2% ABV and will be priced around £50. It will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt

Bottled at 43% ABV.

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A dry saltiness with sweet cereal and a late hint of gentle peat smoke.

Taste: Initially dry (beachy and maritime) warming to crunched sugar, barley and oak.

Finish: The warmingly spiced finish brings puffs of smoke and rock pools with a dark sugar sweetness.
