Douglas Laing certainly know how to put a blended whisky together and in particular how to express a regional style.  And Rock Island certainly fits into this category.

The blend is made up of  Jura, Arran, Islay and Orkney malts.  So expect a big dose of the seaside with that distinctive flavour of peat.

From WhiskyReviewer, “This is a fairly complex whisky. On one hand, Rock Island is spicy and salty. The salt, for me is the first thing you notice on your palette. The warmth of spices is what lingers, coating the mouth with ginger and cinnamon. The central flavor for me though, was marzipan and cherries. This is quite a British analogy, so I’m sorry if I lose some of you here, but the first thing I said to my girlfriend when I tasted this blend was that it was like drinking liquid Cherry Bakewell pies.”.

Supposedly, this replaces the old Rock Oyster.  Looks like someone in the world doesn’t like oysters.
