The Gauldrons Blended Malt (Batch 4)
The Gauldrons // Campbeltown, Scotland
The Gauldrons Blended Malt is a blended malt whisky made by independent bottler, Douglas Laing & Co. featuring Campbeltown single malts. The Gauldrons, meaning "bay of storms" is a bay facing the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Scotland. The bottle features a compass and a spider with her web. Legend has it that Robert the Bruce (1274-1329) was inspired to try, try, and try again to free Scotland from English rule after witnessing a spider fail and reattempt to weave her web numerous times. Finally she succeeded on the seventh attempt inspiring him along the way.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Starting off on malty notes with a waxy layer, batch 4 of The Gauldrons seems to be less sweet than the first batch. The palate is oily and displays soft spices and a faint touch of diesel, but also honeycomb and citrus. This is a lovely representation of that unique Campbeltown DNA."
