PR: Big Peat und Epicurean jetzt auch als 12-jährige Abfüllung

Big Peat und Epicurean – die beiden Blended Malts aus der Remarkable Regional Malts Serie von Douglas Laing – sind erwachsen geworden und werden nun auch als 12-jährige als Abfüllungen angeboten. Beide gab es als Standardausgabe bisher nur ohne Altersangabe.

Im Überblick – Big Peat und Epicurean

  • Big Peat, 12yo, 46%, Blended Malt, Islay, ncf, nca, RRP 55.- GBP
  • The Epicurean, 12yo, 46%, Blended Malt, Lowlands, ncf, nca, RRP 50.- GBP

ncf = no chill-filtration (keine Kältefiltration), nca = no color added (ohne Zusatz von Zuckerkulör), UVP/RRP = unverbindliche Preisempfehlung

Die anderen Abfüllungen mit Age Statements in der Serie sind Timorous Beastie (Highlands) 10yo, Scallywag (Speyside) 10yo und Rock Island (Inseln) 10yo. The Gauldrons rundet die Serie mit Campbeltown aber noch ohne Altersangabe ab.

Der Big Peat hat mir bisher in allen Varianten gut gefallen, aber vor allem als XMAS-Ausgabe in Fassstärke. Eine 12-jährige Variante ist aber sicher auch gut getroffen. Ich bin gespannt.

Big Peat 12 Years Old Islay Malt is a unique marriage of Single Cask Single Malts, proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration, and at 46% alcohol strength. Specifically targeting the specialist retail sector, this new offering is packaged in a premium black and gold gift tube.

From Islay to the Lowlands, Epicurean 12 Years Old is a vibrant and versatile marriage of Single Cask Single Malts distilled in Scotland’s Lowland region. With eye-catching silver and green packaging, the spirit is said to “burst with citrus zest, ripe peaches and a touch of spice”, the tasting notes for Epicurean’s new permanent fixture also feature “coconut flakes and cut grass”. In-line with the Douglas Laing philosophy, it too is offered without colouring or chill-filtration, at a high alcohol strength of 46%.

Commenting on the new releases, Chris Leggat, Douglas Laing & Co.’s Managing Director said: “Since joining Douglas Laing in 2013, it’s been an exciting journey watching Big Peat “grow up” and helping to establish the Epicurean brand which launched as recently as 2016 but is growing very nicely for us. The two are polar opposites in terms of taste profile but these permanent bottlings, designed expressly for specialist retail, are an exciting development for the business. They join Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old, Scallywag 10 Years Old and Rock Island 10 Years Old in our dynamic series of Whiskies which offers a fun yet credible, quality line-up for the specialist retail category”.

Big Peat 12 Years Old and Epicurean 12 Years Old are available to buy from specialist spirits retailers globally with an RRP of £55.00 and £50.00 respectively.
