Blended malt range has come of age

Douglas Laing & Co, the independent Scotch whisky firm, has launched two limited edition expressions to its Remarkable Regional Malts series.

• The Highlands and islands Scotch.

Timorous Beastie 18 years old is a Highland vatted malt without colouring or chill-filtration and is bottled at 46.8% ABV.

Rock Oyster 18, meanwhile, is a blend of malts from Arran, Islay, Jura and Orkney.
Fred Laing, Douglas Laing & Co’s managing director, said the launch of the new expressions was “an exciting development, delivering a range of credible yet fun Scotch whiskies”.
