The Isle of Raasay Distillery began running in September 2017. While waiting for the new Raasay whisky, they have crafted a single malt, aptly called Raasay While We Wait, that demonstrates their whisky making skills and offers a taste of what’s to come. Raasay While We Wait is a blend of two expressions from one distillery; one peated, one unpeated. Finished in French oak Tuscan wine casks from three vineyards that produce Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46%.

Nose: A welcome smokiness on first nosing, mixed with red berries, lemon and grassy notes. With more time; pear, tangerine and melon.

Palate: Dry peatiness on the palate, mixed in with red wine notes. A good dash of orange zest from the nose.

Finish: Oaky and buttery finish.
