Range honours whisky isles

Douglas Laing
The whisky is bottled at 48% ABV

FAMILY-owned whisky firm Douglas Laing & Co has launched the second in a series of bottlings designed to honour Scotland’s whisky-producing islands.

Part of Douglas Laing’s Provenance Coastal Collection, the Jura 12 year old single cask malt has been matured in a sherry butt and, in line with the rest of the collection, is bottled at 48% ABV without any colouring or chill-filtration. Just 383 bottles have been released.

The Coastal Collection packaging features maritime colours, an illustrated rock oyster and intertwined nautical ropes.

Fred Laing, chairman of Douglas Laing & Co, said: “For this very limited Provenance Collection, we have specially selected only four single casks which we believe truly bring to life their maritime heritage. “This latest Jura release is a beautiful balance of dark fruits and rich spices from its sherry butt maturation, alongside that archetypal Jura vanilla, honey and barley character.”

The Coastal Collection Jura 12 year old launches alongside various other Douglas Laing single casks, including an XOP Cameronbridge 40 years single grain, a heavily-sherried Glenrothes 12 year old in Old Particular, and a Bunnahabhain 12 year old in Provenance.
