The Old Malt Cask range was introduced by Douglas Laing in 1998, but it is now part of the Hunter Laing portfolio. Founded by Frederick Laing in 1948, the independent bottler was inherited by his two sons Steward and Fred, who after over 40 years of working together amicably agreed to split the business into two separate companies in 2013  - whilst Douglas Laing continued trading, Hunter Laing was formed. In essence to provide two different futures for the two different sides of the current Laing family. Sharing many of the brands between them, Old Malt Cask moved to the newly created company, joining Old & Rare, The Sovereign and Hepburns Choice to name but a few.

I often wonder how whisky enthusiasts coped before the Internet was around to help guide them through the their malt journeys. I imagine word of mouth was even more important back then for learning about new expressions and expanding ones whisky horizons. But, the Internet has not changed palates and personal opinions – it just offers an ever increasing number of distinctive interpretations all at a mouse click. But, the point still remains – tasting notes on whisky website and blogs, however individual, are there to assist you with your malt exploration.
