Raasay While We Wait Single Malt Whisky
The Isle of Raasay distillery has just opened it doors but if you're curious about how their whisky is going to taste then why not try this handy miniature? The team have worked with another distillery in Scotland to produce a lightly peated malt finished in Italian wine casks, which is what they imagine the whisky made on the island will resemble.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Surprisingly very little smoke on the nose but instead light fruity notes come through.
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.
