Product Description

Raasay While We Wait second release single malt scotch Whisky 46% abv, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

While waiting for the Isle of Raasay Distillery to rise beneath Dùn Caan, we’ve crafted a single malt demonstrating our whisky making skills to offer a tantalising taster of what’s to come.

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.

Aptly enough, this special edition, lightly peated whisky is christened While We Wait.

How is the second release different to our first release? 

Raasay While We Wait first release spent 8 weeks finishing in Tuscan red wine casks. Now, the second release was finished for 18 months, drawing even more influence from the casks.
