Scotch whisky specialist Douglas Laing & Co, has announced the launch of a new cognac finished expression, from its Epicurean Lowland blended malt whisky range.

The Epicurean Cognac Finish (48% ABV) has been produced by finishing its Lowland malt in two Cognac-seasoned single casks.

This latest release in the brands Woods Series, follows on from the launch of The Epicurean Côte-Rôtie Cask Finish, in 2019.

The Epicurean Cognac Finish, is said to have overriding tropical style with lychee, fiery ginger, sandalwood and coconut, as a result of the finishing in two specially selected French Cognac casks.

Commenting on the launch, Chris Leggat, Managing Director at Douglas Laing & Co, said: “After many trials, blind tasting and careful planning, the casks selected for this experiment were the perfect representation of a 5-star Cognac cask. We’ve paired with our Epicurean Lowland Malt Whisky to produce this resulting limited edition: A rather exciting - certainly distinguished - addition to the family”.

The Epicurean Cognac Finish, will be available later this month from specialist retailers for a RRP of £59.99.
