The Epicurean Cask Strength Edinburgh Edition

12th June 2020
Edinburgh bartenders collaborate with Douglas Laing to select a blend of Lowland single malt whiskies to create The Epicurean Cask Strength Edinburgh Edition.

The Epicurean Cask Strength Edinburgh EditionIndependent Glasgow based whisky company Douglas Laing has unveiled a new limited release addition to their Epicurean Lowland blended malt whisky range, The Epicurean Cask Strength Edinburgh Edition.

It seems they have headed east down the M8 motorway to Scotland's capital city to collaborate with some of Edinburgh’s finest bartenders and spirit experts to create this latest expression of their popular Lowland blended malt.

The unique "recipe" for the special bottling is the result of a one-off event which was held at leading bar "Nauticus" in Edinburgh, during which the VIP attendees (Edinburgh’s finest bartenders and spirit experts) masterfully married together various samples of Single Cask Single Malt Whiskies from the Lowlands with the aim of creating a perfectly balanced end product with depth and character. Each unique blend of Single Malts was then judged with the winning recipe becoming this limited edition release of just 600 bottles. A blind tasting by Douglas Laing’s Chairman, Fred Laing, saw Lindsay Blair of 56 North crowned the winner.

The resulting Whisky is said to burst with lively green fruits, sweet barley and tangy citrus with just a touch of spice. Bottled at 53.3% alcohol strength and offered without colouring or chill-filtration, its high strength is said to ensure the natural robust character of the capital city spirit shines through – even when mixed.

Cara Laing, DL's Director of Whisky, commented on the new release, saying: "The Epicurean’s Cask Strength Edinburgh Edition celebrates our Capital City and its impressive array of bars and spirit experts. With summer just around the corner, this is perfect timing to release this fresh and zesty Lowland Malt. We’d recommend enjoying it straight-up or long with ginger ale or apple juice to further enhance those tangy, slightly spicy sweet flavours."

If you fancy one of the 600 bottles of the The Epicurean Cask Strength Edinburgh Edition it has a RRP of £49.99 and will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
