The Brand Innovator of the Year 2016 winner at the Icons of Whisky Awards has announced the release of its new limited edition Scotch whisky.

The cask strength Rock Oyster Island Malt Scotch whisky from Glasgow’s Douglas Laing & Co is bottled at a powerful 57.4% ABV and the company says it “delivers a massive amplification of all those coastal qualities from the original” Rock Oyster, which was “created from the finest maritime malts”.

Douglas Laing, managing director at Fred Laing said: “For Rock Oyster cask strength, I’ve selected a range of casks from the Islands and lovingly vatted them together to create a blast of sea air on the nose and a tempestuously oceanic storm on the palate. Anticipate a big peat hit full of Islay phenols, iodine and coal dust, with a shake of pepper softening to a distinct honey sweetness from the Arran casks. The Isle of Jura brings waves of citrus and barley to the mix, and Orkney fetches up some salt from the deep.”

Douglas Laing’s Rock Oyster cask strength limited edition is available from specialist Whisky retailers and www.DouglasLaing.com now.
