The Raasay Distillery is the first legal distillery in the Inner Hebrides, based on the picturesque Isle of Raasay which has just 120 inhabitants. While it waits for its own spirit to become old enough to bottle as whisky, Raasay are releasing whiskies from other distilleries to showcase its blending skills. This third release in the 'While We Wait' series is a blend of peated and unpeated whiskies from a single distillery, finished in Tuscan red wine casks.

  • Region: Islands 
  • Distillery: Rasaay
  • Age/Name: NAS
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 40% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

  • Nose: Very rich on the nose, with aromas of butter toffees, stewed fruit, brine and preserved lemons. Fresh notes of pine and menthol, too.

    Palate: Plenty of peat and smoke, but balanced by a rich sweetness, along with apple slices fried in butter, toffee chews and some background cinnamon from the cask. Smooth mouthfeel and good weight.

    Finish: The rich, smoky peat gently fades.
