The first single malt from the Raasay distillery, the only legal on the island of the same name. Equipped with only two stills, it began distilling in 2017 and as you all know, a whiskey that can be called whiskey must mature in oak barrels for at least 3 years and a day.
The Isle of Raasay Inaugural Release matured first in first-fill ex-bourbon Tennessee whiskey casks and subsequently finished in ex-Bordeaux red wine casks. Bottled to the degree of 52%, without being cold filtered and without adding dyes, it is present on the market in a total of 7,500 bottles
Nose: Fruity and citrus notes of blackberries, cherries and lemon. Slight presence of peat with a soft and mineral smoke.
Palate: Rich with notes of toffee, ripe fruit, dried fruit, caramel and salted butter.
Final: Moderately persistent, biscuits with butter, vanilla and caramel, with a slight hint of peat smoke.
