Palate: clean. Marine notes, wet ash, honey and licorice. The base is sweet and reminiscent of sugar candies.

Finish: medium long persistence. Ash, bonfire and salty notes.

Overall, the Douglas Laing Rock Oyster is a well made whisky, which presents a discreet balance. A blended whisky that is able to compete, at least in terms of rating, with other products that are far more know and widespread.
