Douglas of Drumlanrig
Distilled : 11/2000 – Bottled : 07/2011 – Cask Number : 7270 – Alcool : 46%
The whisky is very fresh, with hints of herbs and spices. It is quite dry and willingly drinks before dinner.
There are unfortunately very little bottlings of single malt whisky because it is mostly used for Dewar’s blend.
La distillerie traditionnelle Aultmore se trouve un peu au nord de Keith.
En gaélique, Aultmore signifie “Gros ruisseau”.
L’eau utilisée par Aultmore dans la distillerie provient de la source Auchinderran, le malt des malteries de United Distillers de Roseisle et Glenesk. La distillerie possède un mashtun de 9.2 tonnes en acier inoxydable et 6 cuves de fermentation de 46.500 litres en bois de mélèze. Pour la distillation, Aultmore utilise quatre alambics, deux mash stills de 15.500 litre et deux spirits stills de 14.859 litres chauffés à la vapeur.
The Bottler Hunter Laing – Douglas of Drumlanrig
Hunter Laing – a new company …… since the third generation
Although recently established and operational, Hunter Laing is a continuation of 60 years of experience and mastery in the Whisky.
Stewart Laing did give his middle name, Hunter, to form the name of the Company : Hunter Laing where he is joined by his sons Andrew and Scott, who brought in their own independent bottling company and its brand First Editions in Hunter Laing .
We are pleased to announce that the Douglas of Dumlanrig, First Editions, Sovereign, Hepburn’s Choice and Distiller’s Art in whisky and Kill Devil in single cask bottlings of Rum make part of the portfolio La Boutique du Chemin.
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
