Tastings from the Wash House
Douglas Laing Rock Oyster

Bottled in 2015 at 46.8% using Islay, Orkney, Arran and Jura malts.

On the nose you get taken to fisherman’s hut by the sea, his fire mixing with the scent of the harbour. sulphur not really old science class sulphur more a fresh from the earth, a Giza possibly the shot of an old hammer lock musket, this rolls into flint but surprisingly ending with sweet floral notes next to a bbq

Instant hit of salt slight pepper corn and smoke mix, then a fresh sweetness, heather turning into a more creamy sulphur and Clove.

The finish is mild but does hang around for a while in the form of clove and pepper corn, peat, salt and a sherbet fizz ending.

Simply put it’s the islands in a bottle. Top of the cap to the team at Douglas Laing on this one.
