Scotch whisky specialist Douglas Laing & Co, has today announced the launch of a new limited-edition expression from its Epicurean range.

The Epicurean White Port Finish (48% ABV) is a Lowland blended malt Scotch whisky, which was initially matured in American oak barrels, before being re-racked into a hand-selected White Port Single Cask, from the Douro Valley in northern Portugal.

This latest and sixth release in The Epicurean Wood Series, follows on from their Ruby Port Finish and Rivesaltes Finish bottlings.

Commenting on the launch, Jenny Rogerson, Head of Marketing at Douglas Laing, said: “Our Epicurean brand is characterised by his own effervescent, adventurous personality, and the spirit within is the ultimate distillation of Scotland’s Lowland region, representing the archetypally fresh, vibrant flavour profile of the Malt Whiskies distilled there. It’s these two factors – the versatile Malt Whisky and our Lowland gent’s innovative brand values – that lend themselves particularly well to this Limited Edition Wood Series, which seeks to compare and contrast a cross-section of fascinating finishes.”

The Epicurean White Port Finish, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £60.00.
