Douglas Laing & Co has launched a new expression from its The Epicurean blended Scotch whisky brand.

The Epicurean White Port Finish Limited Edition was initially matured in American Oak casks for an unspecified period before spending around one year in ex-white Port barrels sourced from Portugal’s Douro Valley.

Availability details for the blended Scotch, the sixth in The Epicurean’s ‘Wood Series’, were not immediately available.

“Our Epicurean brand’s spirit is the ultimate distillation of Scotland’s Lowland region, representing the flavour profile of the malt whiskies distilled there,” said marketing head Jenny Rogerson.

The brand’s ‘Wood Series’ also includes The Epicurean Lowland Blended Malt Rivesaltes bottling, released in 2020, a blended Scotch finished in casks previously used in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.
