Co-founder Alasdair Day has been in our dunnage warehouse reviewing the Isle of Raasay Single Malt Inaugural Release spirit – our limited-edition first release drawn from a small selection of casks.
Lightly Peated with Dark Fruit Flavours
Just like Raasay While We Wait, the inaugural Isle of Raasay Single Malt is lightly peated with dark fruit flavours, bourbon-matured and finished in high quality red wine casks. Transferred from first fill American oak bourbon barrels last year, this never-to-be-repeated expression is currently finishing in first fill Bordeaux red wine casks.
Every drop is maturing in the heady Isle of Raasay air before it is bottled and delivered in time for Christmas this year, when you can enjoy the first ever legal dram from the Isle of Raasay!
