Fred Laing "If I could select just one dram to transport the whisky enthusiast to the Islands of Scotland, it would be this one." So go on and take a coastal trip by way of wonderful blended malt Scotch whisky.
Master of Malt "A magnificent maritime marvel made with single malts distilled on Scottish islands including Orkney, Jura, Arran and Islay. As ever from Douglas Laing, this tasty, coastal dram is very handsomely presented from top to bottom."
Craft56 "An extraordinary encapsulation of the very best Single Malts distilled amongst others on the glorious islands of Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney, Rock Oyster is a subtle, smoky and sweet celebration of the sea."
Nose - Wind-swept beaches, coastal peat and a hint of ash complemented 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.
