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 blended malt 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.

Rock Island Reviews

Wow !

I would only use this to clean my toilet and I don't think it would work. I was impressed with the packaging and the explanation of what was in the bottle. I'm 71 have drank malts and Blends for ???years. This is rank. No colour and even when I gave my customers a dram FREE they said no and spat it out. TCP is what they called it.

Young whisky & too expensive

Tastes like very young whisky- rough. Petrol mixed with rotten veg. Great packaging though!

The perfect maritime malt!

The perfect everyday maritime Malt... so complex with a beautiful balance of sweet, smoky, salty and citric flavours... a new favourite for sure!

Wow wow wow

This is so good. Sweet, salty, peaty, fruity. So much going on but pulled together beautifully. This is like a tasting menu in a dram. 10/10

On my third bottle and will repurchase - perfect nose of pear and just enough salt breeze for me.

Makes an amazing substitute for vodka in a Bloody Mary! Absolutely delicious, you can taste the sea, peat and the air of windswept beaches

A dissapointment

I was not impressed with this blend. I got the strength but not a lot more. Not enough peat, not enough smoke, no where near enough seaweed.
