From the producer:
Raasay While We Wait single malt Scotch whisky 46% abv, natural colour, non-chill filtered.
While waiting for our inaugural Isle of Raasay Single Malt whisky, we have crafted a single malt that demonstrates our whisky making skills and offers a taste of what’s to come from our distillery.
This limited edition whisky combines two expressions from one distillery – one peated, one unpeated – finished in French oak Tuscan red wine casks. The result: a single malt whisky of uncommon provenance.
A welcome wave of smokiness, mixed with red berries, lemon and grassy notes. A second nosing brings pear, tangerine and melon.
Dry peatiness mixed with red wine notes. A good dash of orange zest from the nose.
Oaky and buttery finish.
Pairs well with Sconser scallops, smoked salmon, game, grouse, woodcock, some Raasay venison, creamy blue cheese, bacon or haggis.
