Last time around, I mentioned the Laing Brothers and their vatting of casks from Laphroaig and Macallan to create the “Double Barrel.” It was so intriguing that I decided to get Stewart Laing on the phone to explain it…and their plans to bring together casks from other distilleries with opposing taste profiles. In the news, the results of this week’s Bonhams whisky auction, Arran names a whisky after the distillery peacock…who promptly takes off, Jefferson’s Bourbon goes Presidential, and tasting notes on the new 25-year-old Rittenhouse Rye coming from Heaven Hill!
