Douglas Laing Rock Island

Douglas Laing Rock Island

Established in 1948, Douglas Laing is a leading creator and purveyor of the finest Scotch Whisky with particular focus on artisan, Small Batch and Single Cask bottlings. A proud family business in its third generation, our goal is to continually exceed the expectations of our customers and consumers around the world by offering the most special, quality-driven and unique Scotch Whisky experience.

Previously known in the industry as "Vatted" Malt (a term that is still preferred by all at Douglas Laing), Blended Malt differs from simply Blended Whisky in that it contains no Grain Whisky, and is therefore widely considered a superior category. Their 'Remarkable Regional Malts' - Big Peat from Islay, Scallywag from Speyside, Timorous Beastie from the Highlands and Rock Oyster, displaying the best from the Islands - are Blended Malt Scotch Whiskies, combining the spirit from some of the regions' finest Distilleries to produce the ultimate territorial tastes of Scotland. If a Single Malt is a violin, you might consider a Blended Malt an entire orchestra.

Paying homage the sea, Douglas Laing's Rock Oyster is a Small Batch bottling created using the finest maritime Malts including those distilled on the esteemed Islands of Jura, Islay, Arran and Orkney. Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength and traditionally without colouring or chill-filtration, this Small Batch bottling has a truly maritime and oceanic character.

Tasting Notes

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.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
