Douglas Laing & Co’s Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky brand recently gained a new bottling known as The Gauldrons Cask Strength Edition that is extremely limited edition.
The new The Gauldrons Cask Strength Edition is a marriage of single cask single malts exclusively from Campbeltown. It has been bottled at a natural casks strength of 53.4% ABV and is offered with coloring or chill filtration. It joins the core expression which launched in 2017 and The Gauldrons Sherry Edition which launched as a limited release earlier this year,
The Gauldrons are said to be “inspired by the eponymous dark sandy coves on Campbeltown’s west shores” and literally means “bay of storms.” It is presented “in a sleek black bottle with a deep purple wax seal and a glow in the dark label for premium and seasonal appeal.”
“We’re delighted to launch the second ever limited edition for our Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky brand!,” said Cara Laing, Marketing Director, in a prepared statement. “Bottled at a Natural Cask Strength, the resulting spirit reveals an exceptional combination of smoky sweetness and maritime saltiness – a dram we can’t wait to share with the whisky aficionados of the world. The standout glow in the dark label was a particularly fun piece of innovation and brings an exciting new dimension to the bottling.
“The phenomenal spirit quality and creative packaging make this new release the ultimate dram to be enjoyed this spooky Halloween season and is one we are incredibly proud of.”
With no more than 3,120 bottles put out to market, The Gauldrons Cask Strength Edition is available online and from specialist spirits retailers in Europe, America and Asia from early October 2022 anf is expected to retail at £60 / €70.
Official tasting notes indicate this Scotch is “classically Campbeltown in style, expect waves of sea air, puffs of gentle smoke, sugary manuka honey and a mouth-coating Cask Strength depth.”
