Whisky Reviews for Remarkable Regional Malts With A Twist DL

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.15 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This blended malt is quite successful. The Rock Oyster dominates (almost without smoke), The Gauldrons comes through in the maritime citrus notes, only the other regional malts I can not really find again. But it is definitely great.
    Doug rocks!
    • Nose
      86 86
      Ale, natural apple juice and then Rock Oyster with the typical Nutella, uh hazelnut notes. Salty with a splash of ripe lemon. Nose likes it.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Supple and sweet, 48% not noticeable, again very nutty towards slightly salted macadamia. Then also fruit cuts with sea buckthorn and lemon.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Becomes quite dry in the mouth, but has an extremely elegant, salivation inspiring afterglow with the delicious ale aroma of the nose.

  2. Falnor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A good blended malt with lots going on, still too much emphasis on the grains to really let it shine.
    • Nose
      Cornflakes, lemon drops, sweet sugarred cereals, some coastal influences like seaweed and citrus fruit. Stays sweet with honey and bisquits. Burned toast.
    • Taste
      Very jam, thick start. Orangepeeling, cherry, bitter/ almond falvoured cookies. Old oak and some charred wood
    • Finish
      Light smoke, dry with herps and grains.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    I do not like the citrus notes - too sour, a bit unpleasant minerally, alcohol bites too - I prefer to buy a Laphi QC at 2/3 of the price which seems to me much more valuable and rounder. Well, I only have one sample - I would drink years on the bottle

    Tasty and well executed.

  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    True to its promise, this really does have some of almost all their Remarkable Regional Malts. The spices are a bit too dominant on the palate, but otherwise a lovely dram.
    • Nose
      A subtle coastalness—is that a word?—with whiffs of peat from Big Peat and Rock Oyster, light floral and citrus notes from The Epicurean, sweeter Timorous Beastie influence with a slight farminess, and a minerality associated with The Gauldrons.
    • Taste
      Sweet (vanilla and sugary cereals), a tad dry and with a proper spicy arrival. Think cracked black peppercorns and cloves, as well as some oak. There's a whisper of peat and smoke.
    • Finish
      Somewhat salty, more spices, and a lingering nuttiness.

  7. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very tasty dram! This bottling encompasses single malts of all five different Scottish whisky regions. The result is a strong blended malt with sweet vanilla, fruity notes and a good load of warming spices - well balanced and wrapped in fine wood smoke. To be enjoyed especially well after an autumn walk in front of an open fire. No boredom at all, especially with the cool packaging.

    I thank Douglas Laing for the complimentary sample and the image!

    • Nose
      Sweet start with malted barley, vanilla and honeycomb, mixed with burnt toffee and fruity notes of peaches. Behind that fine smoke arrives, nicely mixed with seaweed and a discreet maritime note.
    • Taste
      Fairly strong on the palate. Pleasantly sweet at first with crisp barley sugar, vanilla and some citric fruit. Then nicely warming with spiced oak, pepper, nutmeg and a whiff of peat. This is all wrapped in fine wood smoke. Becomes spicier with a second sip.
    • Finish
      The finish shows medium length with warming spices, dry oak and a touch of wood smoke.

      With water: Fresher on the nose when adding a few drops of water, with lingering sweet vanilla in the back. The delicate fruity tones and the spiciness are tamed. Still bold on the palate with a heavy load of spices - pepper in particular. Some fruits of peaches behind, mixed with sweet vanilla, crisp barley sugar and a whiff of smoke. The finish is shorter and only slightly warming with dry oak on the tail.
