The Isle of Raasay Single Malt Inaugural Release is lightly peated with rich dark fruit flavours.
“This limited edition first release is matured in first fill American oak, and finished in 21 exclusive first fill Bordeaux red wine casks.
Isle of Raasay Distillery have created an elegant, lightly peated (15-20 Peat or Phenol Parts Per Million) single malt by taking a premium, narrow cut of our spirit run.
100% Scottish barley is mashed with mineral-rich water from our well to produce a wash that ferments for three to five days. These long fermentations, combined with the manganese from our water, create sweet blackberry characteristics in our spirit before it even touches the oak of the cask.”
Maturation & Finishing
“Our high quality American oak barrels develop almond, hazelnut, and sweet spice flavours in the spirit, and the previous bourbon contents develop caramel, toffee, and creamy chocolate notes.”
Rich Dark Fruit Flavours
“The final maturation in French oak casks develops savoury spice flavours, and the Bordeaux red wine infused oak brings rich dark fruit notes to the fore.”
