The Epicurean Bottling Note
A lowland blended malt from the excellent Douglas Laing that's "city born and bred" and is personified by the 1930s cheeky chappy and all-round connoisseur on the label!
The Epicurean is part of Douglas Laing's Remarkable Regional Malts series and is a blend comprised exclusively of Lowland single malts. A delightful mix of sweet fruit and herbal flavours.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Very buttery, joined by notes of lemongrass, grist and cereals. A fruity hint of green banana and refreshing spearmint.
Palate: Apples, pears and white grapes at first. Elegantly grassy later on, with some chocolate fudge bringing in a touch of sugary sweetness. A pinch of pepper lingers and lasts onto the finish.
Finish: Cloudy lemonade, honey’d barley and granary bread with a thin layer of thyme honey.
