Independent whisky bottler Douglas Laing has released the second batch of a stunning Sherry Cask Finish from The Gauldrons, a blended malt from Campbeltown and the sixth addition to their Remarkable Regional Malts series. This Limited Edition whisky has been finished in Spanish Sherry casks and bottled at a pleasant 50% alcohol volume. The Gauldrons, which means "Bay of Storms" in Gaelic, is named after the dark and stormy bay where the legend of King Robert the Bruce began.
King Robert the Bruce attempted to liberate Scotland from the English, but several failed attempts left him banished to Rathlin Island. Feeling defeated, he saw a small spider persistently trying to create a web in his cave. The spider's perseverance inspired King Robert the Bruce, leading to his eventual victory and Scotland's independence. The Gauldrons' packaging features an image of a spider and web, reflecting this legend.
On the palate, The Gauldrons offers a maritime and salty flavor with the distinct Campbeltown character, complemented by a burst of rich, dark fruit and spices.
