Inspired by the ancient Islay legend of a beautiful but tragic Norse goddess, Douglas Laing presents Yula III, the final instalment in our trilogy of limited edition Island Malt Scotch Whiskies.
Douglas Laing’s Yula is comprised of several of the Islands’ most sought after, peated Malts, this time aged 22 Years. The Yula series charts the spirit’s journey and celebrates the Laing family’s own proud origins on Islay. Just 900 bottles of Yula’s Third Chapter are available globally.
Catch a gentle oceanic salt and ozone clean zephyr as the nose opens – with its later tobacco and leather style. Palatewise, anticipate a complex mix of sweet peat, pepper, coal dust, oak wood smoke and a late-on-the-palate chocolatey sweetness. The long subtle finish initially reflects that dulcet, barley quality but still shows a warmingly spiced, tarred and sooted style.
