Virgin Chinkapin Oak Single Cask Bottling

Our peated Chinkapin oak single cask single malt whisky is the second in this series. 242 bottles, 61.4% ABV, natural colour, non-chill filtered.

Virgin Chinkapin Oak Cask

Freshly charred and toasted, these custom made Chinkapin, or Quercus Muehlenbergii American white oak casks are a type of oak native to central and eastern North America.

The fresh charring of the cask brings a rich colour and flavour early on in the maturation process, and the high toast caramelises the natural sugars in the wood. Expect sweet toffee and butterscotch on the nose, with vibrant dark fruit flavours and deep, rich colours at a young age.

Na Sia – Our Six Cask Story

Na Sia, meaning ‘The Six’ in Gaelic, represents our unique six cask single malt recipe.

Two Isle of Raasay spirits – peated and unpeated – are matured separately in first fill Rye whiskey, fresh Chinkapin oak and first fill Bordeaux red wine casks. These six recipe casks marry together to create the perfect dram with real elegance, complexity and depth of character.

For each cask type we will release two single cask bottlings – one for the Sláinte Club and one for our Distillery Shop as part of our Na Sia Single Cask Series.
