Distiller Douglas Laing & Co have announced The Gauldrons Sherry Cask Finish - their first ever limited-edition bottle under their Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky brand.

The limited-edition bottle will launch just 2,125 bottles, with an RRP of £60 and an ABV of 46.2%. The Blended malt enjoyed a finishing period in Spanish sherry casks, with the small batch bottling without any colouring or chill-filtration.

The packaging includes a mini booklet attached around the bottle neck, as well as gold foil detail and a red colour to the sherry cask to represent the rich character of the Scotch whisky inside.

A bottle of The Gauldrons, meaning "Bay of Storms"

Speaking on the new product, marketing director Cara Laing said the following: “We’re thrilled to launch the first ever Limited Edition for The Gauldrons. The classic Gauldrons spirit is always a standout dram for us, earning rave reviews from the industry and delighting consumers at events the world over. Experimenting with these exceptional-quality Sherry casks has resulted in a classically Campbeltown dram with smoky sweetness balanced by rich spices, and we truly can’t wait to share it with whisky aficionados across the globe.”

The producer has described it as having toffee apple notes on the nose with marshmallows and candy floss, a crème brûlée, ginger and nutmeg mouthfeel, and a tangy orange sweets and stewed red fruits finish.

The meaning of The Gauldrons is said to translate to “Bay of Storms,” and is said to have been inspired by the coves on Campbeltown’s western shores. The bottle will join the core expression which launched back in 2017.
