Their Remarkable Regional Malts series explores the various regions of whisky through single malt, single grain, and blended expressions. The Rock Oyster (Rock Island) Blended Malt Scotch Whisky takes you to the whisky islands of Jura, Islay, Arran, and Orkney, and the single malts, known for their maritime, smoky profiles. Bottled at 93.6 proof without chill filtration and coloring, it's a briny small-batch expression with sweet peat, honey, and pepper notes.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
