Douglas Laing Rock Island Sherry Edition

9th August 2020
Douglas Laing releases Rock Island Sherry Edition, a limited edition expression of their Island blended malt Scotch Whisky.

Douglas Laing Rock Island Sherry EditionIndependent Glasgow based whisky distiller and bottler Douglas Laing & Co has unveiled a limited edition expression of their Island blended malt Scotch Whisky range, the Rock Island Sherry Edition.

This new limited release in the Rock Island line-up is a marriage of Single Cask Single Malts from Scotlandís Whisky Islands including Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney. The Whisky spent the final stages of its long maturation in specially selected Spanish Sherry butts. The resulting spirit is said to capture the essence of Scotlandís Whisky islands with an earthy, sweetly-peated style balanced by a spicy, sherried warmth at its core. Bottled at 46.8% ABV alcohol strength, the limited edition maritime malt is as you would expect from Douglas Laing offered in its natural state, without colouring or chill-filtration.

As Rock Island Whisky is said to be the perfect accompaniment to fresh seafood it is no coincidence that the launch of Rock Island Sherry Edition coincided with National Oyster Day, a global celebration of the delicacy held annually on 5th August.

Cara Laing, Director of Whisky at Douglas Laing & Co. commented on the launch, saying: "Rock Island Sherry Edition exemplifies the impact exceptional Sherry butts can have on a peated, oceanic style of Whisky Ė when spicy sweet meets maritime peat. We are delighted with the end result Ė itís a phenomenal Whisky and a wonderful dram to pair with some shellfish this National Oyster Day!".

Rock Island Sherry Edition has a RRP of 45.99 and will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
