Aged for 10 years, this release will be a permanent addition to the range. Note: The blended malt brand Rock Island was formerly called Rock Oyster.
Peated Blended Malt100% malted barley from more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"Obviously fairly young and also very sweet, with a big hit of vanilla, but also bitter lemon peel, dried seaweed, orris root and very soft wood smoke. The palate also has an inherent sweetness, but then again is pretty earthy too. Some straw and hay also, with a touch of wood smoke and white pepper. Overall a good new entry into the Rock Island pantheon."
