FIRST LEGAL ISLE OF RAASAY SINGLE MALT IN SCOTCH WHISKY HISTORY
Rooted in centuries of illicit distilling, the Hebridean Isle of Raasay provides the ingredients for the perfect dram. Their signature Isle of Raasay Single Malt expression is lightly peated balanced with rich dark fruit flavours. A flavour profile inspired by some older style smoky Hebridean single malts. Combining tradition with contemporary thinking. That’s the Raasay way.
Nose: Sweetness and malt, a flash of new make, pale orchard fruits waft quickly past, prominent rye followed by blackcurrant and brambles, then peat. A slight funkiness with time. There’s no mistaking a youthful peaty spirit to begin, with grist and starch, lemon peel, ozone, rock pools and peat.
Palate: Thick mouthfeel, oil, peat and smoke along with juicy red fruit. Much sweeter than the nose suggests. Citrus from candied orange peel and grapefruit bitters cuts through the sweetness. A nice creamy spice rounds things out - 60% chocolate with chili flakes.
Finish: Red fruit on the finish, along with gentle peat and sooty coal smoke to finish things off.
