Douglas Laing Rock Oyster
£39.99

Paying homage the sea, Douglas Laing's Rock Oyster is a Small Batch bottling created using the finest maritime Malts from the Islands of Jura, Islay, Arran and Orkney which give this whisky a true maritime and oceanic character.


Wave soaked rocks and a salty oceanic fresh influence on the nose, running to an initially subtle palate that carries soft and rather sweet peat paralleled with smoke, honey, damp ash, liquorice and late pepper. All of what went before is neatly replicated in the moreish finish.

Description

Details

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.
