Yula is clean and fresh, with an oceanic character
Sweet barley and peat smoke initially, building to charred wood, chimney soot and soft tones of tar, before reverting to its earlier, butterscotch sweetness
More burnt hues appear on the finish, with the introduction of soft camphor tones, coal dust and smoke.
Inspired by the ancient Islay legend of a beautiful but tragic Norse goddess, Douglas Laing presents Yula, the first of a three part trilogy of limited edition Island Malt Scotch Whisky.
Douglas Laing’s Yula is comprised of several of the Islands’ most sought after, peated malts. To be released consecutively in three limited edition batches, the first of which is bottled at 20 Years Old, Yula charts the spirit’s journey and celebrates the Laing family’s own proud origins on Islay. Just 900 bottles of Yula’s First Chapter are available globally.
