Rock Island, Blended Malt, 70cl
One of the more recent additions to Douglas Laing's Remarkable Malt collection. The Rock Island (formally oyster) is a Blended Malt Scotch Whisky consisting of malts from Highland Park, Isle of Jura, Bowmore, and the Isle of Arran. Very coastal in nature, embodying everything that is the rugged Scottish coastline.

Nose: Wind-swept beaches, coastal peat and a hint of ash, complimented by touches of green fruit.

Finish: Salinity lasts on the finish along with peppery warmth.
