Other reviews... The King of Scots brand, along with three casks of whisky, was acquired fully by Fred Laing Snr in 1948, at which point he established the company Douglas Laing & Co. He set about acquiring stocks from distilleries as fillings for his new blend – not an easy task in post-war Scotland. King of Scots really ‘took off’ during the 1970s when Douglas Laing & Co. was asked to provide a glitzy blended Scotch for the duty free market, to appeal to wealthy Asian travellers. Today, whiskies used to make the King of Scots blend are hand-picked by the company’s chairman and master blender Fred Laing. Each bottle is decorated with Scotland’s Lion Rampant, which was used by the Kings of Scotland for centuries. A three-year-old blend with notes of toffee, spices and citrus on the nose. At first, the palate is said to be sweet, with ripe fruits, toffee and vanilla, developing into a sweet and spicy finish. Non-chill-filtered, the whisky is bottled at 40% abv. - scotchwhisky.com
