Na Sia Single Cask Series - Rye Cask Bottling

Isle of Raasay Hebridean Single Malt

Na Sia Single Cask Series – Through The Ages

Na Sia Single Cask Bottlings demonstrates our six unique Isle of Raasay Single Malt recipe casks.

American Rye Single Cask Bottling

These American Rye casks are from Woodford Reserve Distillery, Kentucky, where they use 53% rye in their mash bill.

The flavours emulate history’s original rye whiskeys, with strong peppery, spicy flavours in a sea of fruit and butterscotch.

These casks develop interesting pepper, spice and butter flavours in our single malt scotch whisky.

Released every 2 years as peated and unpeated spirit.

American Rye Cask Bottling Releases

The most common types of casks used to mature Scotch Whisky are ex-Bourbon barrels made from the most prevalent species of North American white oak, Quercus alba.

As well as the classic vanilla flavour that you get from this type of oak, we are looking for a spicier black pepper note and more of a butterscotch flavour in our ex-rye cask matured spirit. The barrels come from Woodford Reserve distillery in this instance.

Capacity: 190 Litres
Oak Variety: Quercus Alba, American Oak

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.
