received_899964243788241

Behind door number 6 of the Kensington Wine Market Whisky Advent Calendar was a Douglas Laing Epicurean.  This expression is from their Remarkable Regional Malts series.  The Epicurean is the blend they created to represent the Lowland Region of Scotland.

Bottled at 46.2% ABV. This spirit is light gold in colour.

Nose: Light grass, barley, citrus, herbs and dried wildflowers.  A piece of toast with marmalade.

Palate: Sweet and spice converge.  Almonds, peach skin and stewed plums.

Finish: Toasted almonds, cut grass, top crust of burnt sugar on a crème brulee.

This is a very well put together whisky with lots of character and depth.

Rating 8.3/10
