Douglas Laing's Big Peat Small Batch Islay Vatted Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Glasgow-based Douglas Laing & Co are independent bottlers and blenders headed by brothers, Fred and Stewart Laing. The company has traditionally specialised in blending super premium whiskies for Far East markets. The brothers succeeded their father, Fred Douglas, who founded the company in 1948 and they’ve not let their Dad down over the past 25 years, significantly expanding the enterprise. Key to their success has been the management and marketing of the vast stocks of old and rare malts the family has built up over the last half century.
The company’s latest offering is a new vatted Islay malt containing spirit from Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore and Port Ellen. It was awarded the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010, while the Malt Maniacs awarded it “BEST PEATED WHISKY/DAILY DRAM.” Bottled without chill filtration at 46% alc vol.
