Douglas Laing Announces Two New Rock Island Blended Malts


4th July 2019
Douglas Laing announces a limited release Rock Island 21 Year Old as well as a new addition to the core range, Rock Island 10 Year Old.

Douglas Laing Rock Island 21 Year Old and Rock Island 10 Year Old

Douglas Laing has revealed two new blended malt whiskies under their Rock Island brand, the first is Rock Island 21 Year Old which is a limited release expression and the second is Rock Island 10 Year Old which is a permanent addition to the Rock Island range and will be a continually available offering.

Rock Island 21 Year Old has been bottled at 46.8% ABV, non Chill filtered and is a limited release of 4,200 bottles with a expected retail price of £89

Rock Island 10 Year Old has been bottled at 46% ABV, non Chill filtered and is expected to retail at £45.

Unfortunately the announcement of the two Rock Island whiskies I received from Douglas Laing wasn't accompanied by a detailed tasting note for each of the whiskies so I cant tell you just how smoky or maritime these island blended malts are.

Cara Laing, third generation and Director of Whisky at Douglas Laing, commented: "We’re thrilled to celebrate sea-faring Scotch Whisky this summer with two new releases in our Rock Island range – Rock Island 10 Years Old and Limited Edition 21 Years Old. Created by marrying together Single Malts distilled on the Whisky Islands of Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney, Rock Island and its special edition counterparts genuinely encapsulate the archetypal salty, smoky, peppery warmth that Island Whiskies are famed for”.

No doubt you will soon find the new Douglas Laing Rock Island whiskies available from specialist whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
