Rock Oyster Cask Strength Island Malt (700ml)
Chris Leggat, Chief Executive Officer at Douglas Laing said: “It’s been two years since the launch of Rock Oyster Cask Strength and we’re delighted to now respond to customer demand with this new limited release. It’s true what they say – calm seas never made skilled sailors – nor did they make monstrously maritime whiskies! This is a spectacularly stormy, rich and earthy dram that fans of Rock Oyster’s coastal spirit will undoubtedly relish.”
Nose: Oft that’s big! Coastal sea air, and slightly melancholic freshness. Then orange blossom, coconut flakes, malt biscuits, a banoffee pie creaminess and overripe lemons. There’s a bit of tea leaf & a snuffed beach bonfire lurking underneath.
Palate: Zingy ginger, lemon rind and salted limes to begin. Then some vanilla sponge cake, some floral notes (maybe violets?), before barley water, toasted malt, cinnamon and rich oak give good structure.
Finish: The wood spices linger around with some aromatic peat, singed heather and creamy citrus.
