Raasay While We Wait Single Malt Scotch Whisky 46% abv, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

The Isle of Raasay Distillery began distilling in September 2017. It takes three years of maturation in oak casks before we can legally call our spirit “whisky”.

While waiting for the new Raasay whisky, we have crafted a single malt, aptly called Raasay While We Wait, that demonstrates our whisky making skills and offers a tantalising taste of what’s to come from the Isle of Raasay Distillery.

Description

Raasay While We Wait Single Malt Scotch Whisky 46% abv, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

The Isle of Raasay Distillery began distilling in September 2017. It takes three years of maturation in oak casks before we can legally call our spirit “whisky”.

While waiting for the new Raasay whisky, we have crafted a single malt, aptly called Raasay While We Wait, that demonstrates our whisky making skills and offers a tantalising taste of what’s to come from the Isle of Raasay Distillery.

We achieved this by blending two expressions from one distillery; one peated, one unpeated. The whisky then finished in French oak Tuscan wine casks from three vineyards that produce Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

The result? Single malt whisky of uncommon provenance.

Tasting Notes

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:
November 2015 – 1st Release Limited Edition
