Douglas Laing’s Rock Oyster Scotch whisky expression is known for bringing together whiskies from Scotland’s islands into a blended malt that’s evocative of the sea. First introduced a few years back, it was recently supplemented with an 18-year-old variant. Now another bottling, more limited in scope, is joining the family with a sherry cask focus.
The new Rock Oyster Sherry Edition, according to those behind it, is non-age statement in nature like the original bottling. The major difference between the two is the sherry influence, with the latest release having spent the final spell of its maturation in Spanish sherry butts before being bottled at 46.8% ABV.
