Rock Island Bottling Note

Douglas Laing's Rock Island bottles the epitome of the Scottish Islands. The blend marries a plethora of Island whiskies, with malts from Islay, Arran, Orkney and Jura. The whisky has been bottled at a rather specific 46.8% ABV, and of course without colouring or chillfiltration. If you think this sounds all a bit familiar, the blend was previously dubbed Rock Oyster, though the name was changed because it turns out there's an awful lot of people who don't like oysters. Not to worry, it's the exact same great maritime whisky!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Wind-swept beaches, coastal peat and a hint of ash, complimented by touches of green fruit.

Palate: Yet more sea breeze, with oat cake crumbs, growing spicy notes of cracked black pepper and a deft whiff of peat smoke. Hints of vanilla here and there.

Finish: Salinity lasts on the finish along with peppery warmth.

A lot to taste.

A cracker

This is a cracker! A recent find thanks to a friend who introduced me to the similarly good 10 year old variant. Expect lots of salted caramel, seaweed, a touch of peat and smoke but a delicious barley sweet taste too

A truly excellent maritime Malt. This one really does take you to the coast - there’s a plethora of rock salt, cracked pepper with smokey sweetness. Delicious!

Fantastic. No other description needed! Loads of salty but surprisingly sweet maritime character. Perfect for fans of Talisker (like me!)
