This exclusive release has undergone a distinctive finishing process, maturing solely in Plantation Rum Casks sourced from the sun-soaked Caribbean islands of Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad.

This innovative blend promises to deliver a sensory voyage, combining the rich heritage of Scotch Whisky with the exotic influence of Caribbean rum casks. The Rock Island Rum Cask Edition is poised to captivate whisky enthusiasts with a harmonious fusion of island flavours and Scotch craftsmanship.
