Douglas Laing The Epicurean The Glasgow Edition Ex-Cuvée Oak Finish

The acclaimed Lowland Malt Scotch Blended Malt Whisky brand, The Epicurean, has introduced its latest offering, a tribute to its birthplace, the city of Glasgow. This metropolis also houses its independently family-owned parent company, Douglas Laing & Co.

This exclusive edition harmoniously blends the finest Single Cask Single Malts sourced from the Lowland region of Scotland. Subsequently, it undergoes an extensive maturation phase in select French ex-cuvée oak casks of exceptional quality. This limited-edition gem is presented at its pure cask strength of 50.4% alcohol, priding itself on being devoid of artificial colouring or the process of chill-filtration. With a global allocation strictly set at just 5,100 bottles, this release is anticipated to swiftly find its way into the hands of enthusiasts.

The Epicurean is often described as "the life and soul of the party" and a discerning aficionado of gourmet fare and exquisite beverages. This bottling has been artfully crafted to encapsulate these qualities. It is showcased within a sophisticated black bottle adorned with lavish gold foil accents, elegantly encased in a premium gift tube. The harmonious black and gold aesthetic imparts a genuine feeling of opulence to this offering. The tasting notes unfold with "bursts of malted barley, delicate vanilla blossoms, and invigorating lemon zest," offering a dram that the Douglas Laing team hails as nothing short of "truly exceptional."

Commenting on this new bottling, Scott Morrison, Brand Manager, said: "This latest Epicurean Glasgow Edition is one we are particularly proud of. The unique finish is a first for the Douglas Laing team and is a credit to the continuous innovation and quality we strive to achieve. The eclectic array of flavours imparted from the French ex-cuvée oak casks combined with the exceptional packaging make this release one not to be missed!"

The Epicurean Glasgow Limited Edition has a RRP of £55 and will be available f
rom specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
