Douglas Laing’s Rock Oyster Whisky is a love letter to the Scottish Islands.

The Douglas Laing Company was founded in 1948 by — you guessed it — Douglas Laing. They have a stellar reputation as one of the leading independent bottlers of Scotch Whisky in the United Kingdom. They started as by purchasing single casks of fine single malts. Then the grew to create their own blends. Now they even commission small batch production from some the finest Whisky makers in Scotland and a few small shops too. This has allowed them to develop a solid range of private-label products to round out the offerings.

They added the Rock Oyster to their range of blended malt Whiskies in 2015. As its name would imply, this is solidly an island-style Whisky made up of single malts from Islay, Jura, Orkney, and Arran. If you know your Scotch, then you know what to expect from this combination — a savory, salty, and peaty dram with a nice hit of smoke on the way in and on the way out. It is truly a wonderful blend that whispers the sea in every sip. And with no artificial coloring or chill-filtration, this spirit is as true as a sailor’s knot — and just as strong.

Too salty

Jason,
If you like Mcallen, any of the glens the. You won't like this completely different taste and don't care for it.

Eric,
Best dram to call upon when introducing someone to the rich flavors of Scotland.

Cass,
A hint of pipe ash? Sorry guys, someone must have emptied their whole pipe bowl in my bottle. Acidic and bitter tasting. Lovely light colour though.
