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.

Reviews for Rock Island
A sweet peat and salty smoke hit. delicious!
This has become a firm favourite and I am now onto my second bottle. If you love smoke, a coastal - maritime style and a bit of peat this is for you…, complex and well balanced.

James G.’s review is a joke
Love the sea and soil combo. The slightly smoky and peaty blends so well with this organic mix on the nose and tongue. Long finish adds even further value to the experience. For those who enjoy unique this is it!

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!

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
