Rock Oyster Sherry Cask
Web Price: $83.00
Described by bottler Douglas Laing as the "lip-smacking success story of the magic that can happen when sweet meets peat", Rock Oyster Scotch blended malt pairs Island salt-citrus character with the richness of sherry butts.
Nose: Its sweetly peated nature is immediately apparent, along with heaps of dark fruit.
Palate: Sea salt whipped up on a sea breeze, warm Christmas spices, a cereal quality and that gentle peat smoke. Tasty.
Finish: Long and saline, balanced with those dark fruits.
Overall: A complex drop - sweet and peat are a match made in heaven.
