Introduced initially as a Macallan-Laphroaig bottling from selected Single Casks of each, Douglas Laing has continued the process with very specially selected Single Casks from different distilleries.
An intriguing and distinctly fun process, the process consists of regularly sampling and approving different casks then marrying / vatting them with different distillery Malts. The current vatted blend is that of the Caol Ila and Ben Nevis distilleries.
Whether you call this a Vatted Malt or a Blend of Malts – Douglas Laing has brought together in each of these Double Barrel selections some truly individual and unique character of nose, palate and finish, all left unchill filtered at 46% strength.
