Rock Island 21 Year Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky 700ML

The Rock Island is a limited-edition blend from Douglas Laing, which brings together whiskies from Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney. Every contributing scotch has been aged for at least twenty-one years. You’ll get a hefty waft of sea spray and peat in the nose and palate, with a hint of vanilla sweetening up the finish.

TASTING NOTE

Nose: Some charcoal, rock pools and salty sea spray, with hints of polished leather and sal ammoniac, but also a damp forest floor. Clearly some citrus fruits too, as well as candy canes and vanilla custard.


Taste: A little less of a high flyer than the nose. Somewhat spicy (pepper), with a slightly sour and rubber-y note. Quite a bit of peat too, with a hint of iodine. At this age, I had hoped for something a little more elegant.


Finish: Lingering peat and rubber.

ABV: 46.8%
