Rock Island Rum Cask

Rock Island Rum Cask Edition is a blended Scotch whisky made up of Island single cask single malts that were married and then finished exclusively in Plantation Rum casks hailing from the Caribbean islands of Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad. From the fine folks at Douglas Laing, this whisky brings together flavours from the peat-smoked shores of Scotland to the warm climes of the Caribbean in order to stay true to Rock Island’s maritime heritage. Rock Island Rum Cask Edition was bottled at 46.8% ABV without colouring or chill-filtration.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Maritime salinity, ashy smoke, salted caramel, oak char, tropical fruit, and cinnamon.

Palate Toasted brown sugar, banana foam sweets, beach bonfire, lime peel, vanilla, and a little anise.

Finish Charred pineapple and cinder toffee.

Can’t praise this enough. Well impressed by this special bottling of Rock Island. The rum casks were clearly of the upmost quantity.

Pretty blown away by this maritime jewel. The cask finishing has been managed perfectly with a brilliant balance of sweet rum meets maritime peat.

Really impressed. This is an impressive rum finished special bottling. The salty maritime whisky has a wonderful burnt sugar, coconut and pineapple sweetness

Tasty but not the best Rock Island
The first thing that hits you is the normal Rock Island maritime notes, sea spray, seaweed - then almost in seconds you are hit with tropical fruit and caramel. The first thing running through my mind were pineapple and banana fritters in syrup, like chinese restuarant desserts. Deep caramel and butterscotch.
In the mouth not as spicy and peppery as other Rock Islands, but there's a tingle, not super sherbet like the 14 year old, but still very present. Very chewy mouth feel, with the dominan
