Tasting Notes

Raasay While We Wait

AROMA:

Surprisingly very little smoke on the nose but instead light fruity notes come through.

COLOUR:

Natural colour, heather tinted imparted from Tuscan red wine oak casks.

TASTE:

Instantly there is peat smoke and spice (a distant campfire, black pepper, liquorice, oak and then the sea breeze) slowly this is balanced with the dry fruit from the Tuscan red wine casks (black currant, blackberry, raspberry and cherries) all blending together leaving a tantalising, lingering taste of what is to come.

FINISH:

A long lingering finish that on closing your eyes takes you to Raasay.

FOOD PAIRINGS:

Pairs well with Sconser Scallops, Smoked Salmon, game, grouse, woodcock, venison, creamy blue cheese, bacon, haggis.

ABV:

46% Non-Chill Filtered

YEAR RELEASED:

Borders

AROMA:

Prominent sherry notes on the nose, hints of sugar-coated nuts.

COLOUR:

Natural colour, lightly golden taken from sherry finishing casks.

TASTE:

Surprisingly dry on the palate with the sherry influences dominating. Walnuts balanced with vanilla, herbaceous and floral notes coming through towards the end, and just a touch of warm spice.

FINISH:

Lingering, dry and complex.

FOOD PAIRINGS:

Pairs well with Cocoa Black dark praline chocolates.

51.7% Non-Chill Filtered
