Rock Oyster Cask Strength Limited Edition 2

2nd August 2018
Douglas Laing release Rock Oyster Cask Strength Limited Edition 2 the concluding edition in a two part series.

Rock Oyster Cask Strength Limited Edition 2Rock Oyster Cask Strength Limited Edition 2 is the second and concluding edition of a two part series of cask strength Island region blended malts from Douglas Laing & Co. Edition 2 has taken a while in coming as the first edition was released over two years ago but hopefully it is a case of good things are worth waiting on.

Douglas Laing tell me that it is once again a blend of Island region single malts, including those distilled on the islands of Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney. Matured in American oak and bottled at 56.1% ABV and like Douglas Laing's other popular Remarkable Regional Malts, Big Peat (Islay), Scallywag (Speyside) and Timorous Beastie (Highland), both Rock Oyster standard and cask strength bottlings are non chill-filtered and have no added colouring.

The new Cask Strength release is said to deliver "flambéed orange peel, rich earthiness, puffs of drifting peat smoke and salty tang” on the palate and, in classic Douglas Laing style, the maritime Malt is assuredly offered without colouring or chill-filtration, reportedly ensuring that the Scotch Whisky is truly “as natural as it gets".

Says Chris Leggat, Chief Executive Officer at the family business: "It’s been two years since the launch of Rock Oyster Cask Strength and we’re delighted to now respond to customer demand with this new limited release. It’s true what they say – calm seas never made skilled sailors – nor did they make monstrously maritime Whiskies! This is a spectacularly stormy, rich and earthy dram that fans of Rock Oyster’s coastal spirit will undoubtedly relish. A perfectly peated dram to pair with shellfish on National Oyster Day!"

Rock Oyster Cask Strength Limited Edition is a limited release of 8,400 and will be priced around £50 and you will find it available from specialist whisky shops worldwide, including The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
