All about making whisky
‘Two distilleries, one whisky’ was the idea behind this series consisting of three expressions launched in 2010 by the independent Scottish bottler Douglas Laing. Behind each whisky there is in fact a blended malt, consisting of two single malts from two different distilleries, bottled after a marrying period at 46%, unchillfiltered. The objective is to create a new whisky, while also bringing out the best of each component of the blend. The blends in this range generally consist of two malts from regions and of styles that at first seem to be complete opposites: Speyside and Islay, mainland and islands, bourbon casks and sherry casks... The results are always interesting and sometimes surprising!
