Raasay While We Wait Single Malt Scotch Whisky 46% abv, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

The Isle of Raasay Distillery began distilling in September 2017. It takes three years of maturation in oak casks before we can legally call our spirit “whisky”.

While waiting for the new Raasay whisky, we have crafted a single malt, aptly named Raasay While We Wait, that demonstrates our whisky making skills and offers a tantalising taste of what’s to come from the Isle of Raasay Distillery.

The result? Single malt whisky of uncommon provenance.

Palate:
Instant peat smoke and spice (a distant campfire, black pepper, liquorice, oak and sea breeze), slowly balanced with the dry fruit from Tuscan oak (blackcurrant, blackberry, raspberry and cherries), blending effortlessly to create a smooth and melodious sensation.

A long lingering finish that on closing your eyes takes you to Raasay.

Pairs well with Sconser scallops, smoked salmon, game, grouse, woodcock, venison, creamy blue cheese, bacon, haggis.
