“Rock Oyster” Island Vatted Malt From Douglas Laing

Rock Oyster PackEstablished in 1948, leading independent Scotch whisky specialist, Douglas Laing & Co today announced the release of their brand new Island inspired “Vatted” Malt – Rock Oyster.

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 rightly esteemed Islands of Jura, Islay, Arran and Orkney.

Bottled at 46.8% and without colouring or chill-filtration, this small batch bottling has a maritime and oceanic character of sea-salt, sweet peat, smoke, honey and pepper.

Much attention and consideration was spent creating the packaging which features a bespoke illustration of both an oyster, and a nautical scene, while telling the story of this seafaring spirit.

Commenting on the new release, Douglas Laing’s Managing Director Fred Laing, said:“Rock Oyster showcases the archetypal Island character of gentle peat-smoke, vanilla, honey and salt. If I could select just one dram to transport the whisky enthusiast to the Islands of Scotland, it would be this one. Rock Oyster will sit proudly alongside our other core regionally themed Vatted Malts – Big Peat from Islay, Scallywag from Speyside and Timorous Beastie from the Highlands – hopefully contributing to Douglas Laing’s continued growth.”

Douglas Laing’s Rock Oyster will be available from specialist Whisky retailers from January 2015.
