Some of Scotland's small but perfectly formed island are famed not just for their somewhat unhurried way of life, but more so far the remarkable Single Malt distilled there, bursting with flavours of the sea. Rock Island 10 Years Old is a small batch marriage of single malt whiskies distilled on the isles of Jura, Arran, Orkney and Islay..
A 10-year-old blended malt from Douglas Laing, made with whiskies produced across all of Scotland, created to celebrate the indie bottler's 70th anniversary. Aromas of orange boiled sweets, liquorice, toast with honey and driftwood fill the nose, and the palate offers notes of butterscotch, peppery peat smoke, chocolate buttons and brown sugar. The label features the characters from Douglas Laing's regional malts, including Big Peat, the Scallywag, the Timorous Beastie, the Epicurean, the Rock Oyster and the spider from the Gauldrons, and part of the tube it comes with twists so that you can make them swap heads.
Douglas Laing's Remarkable Regional Malts are the ultimate distillation of Scotland's Malt Whisky regions; each bottling embodies the overarching characteristics of the region it is sourced from.
