Raasay While We Wait 1st Release

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

Awards: IWSC 2016 Silver, ISC 2016 Bronze, HKIWSC 2016 Bronze

While waiting for 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 for 8 weeks 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.

Tasting Notes

Nose:

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.

Palate:

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
