Rock Island 10 Year Old Bottling Note

A fabulous addition to the Rock Island range comes this 10 Year Old expression! Island malts from Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney matured for a decade are the stars of the show here. Expect all those wonderful sea breeze notes from the original Rock Island, along with some gentle, balanced cask influence.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lemon curd, honey ice cream and digestive biscuits, with a smoky sea breeze running through

Palate: Oily malt, honeycomb and a sprinkle of rock salt, with gentle peppery oak influence and orange Starburst.

Finish: Creamy vanilla, bonfire smoke and sea spray.

Rock Island 10 Year Old Reviews

An excellent Island malt blend

My first Douglas Laing and I’m very impressed. The bottle art is beautiful, a shimmering oyster pearl in dark blues and gold design. Old-fashioned and regal but in a good way.
The drink itself: it's an impressive assortment of disparate malts from Orkney, Arran, Islay and Jura. You can pretty much guess the components from that composition due to the limited options on 3 of those Scottish Islands. It would, however, have been nice if we were given the same full disclosure as Compass Box provide.

The nose is briney, citrus and a touch of peat. The taste has the brine and citrus plus a bit of engine oil/tar (probably the Islay and I’m going to guess its either Caol Ila or Bowmore). There is the merest whiff of sherry influence which could be the Highland Park malt breaking through.

Its 46%, unchill-filtered and I’m sure natural colour too. All bonus points there.

This would definitely appeal to fans of Talisker and Old Pulteney
