Big Peat 12 Year Old, is said to deliver notes which include: charred oak, chimney soot and rock salt, complemented by brown sugar and bonfire ashes.
Epicurean 12 Year Old, is said to deliver notes which include: citrus zest, ripe peaches, touches of spice, coconut flakes and cut grass.
Commenting on the news, 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 Year Old and Epicurean 12 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £55.00 and £50.00.
