Rock Oyster 18 Years Old whisky review: At the time of tasting I found it hard to separate this in preference from the power of the standard blend. With time, both maturation and time in the glass and on the palate, this 18 year old edition reveals more subtleties and complexity and so now just pips the standard by a point in my book. For the price differential however it is hard to pass by the standard Rock Oyster blend. 86/100

Rock Oyster (46.8%, Douglas Laing, 2018)

Rock Oyster whisky review: On revisit I’m still very impressed with this Island blend from Douglas Laing’s Remarkable Regional Malts range of blended malt whisky. If anything this sample seemed a little smoother and more tame with a twist of some sharper citric elements added into it which works really well with the salt and smoke. 85/100
