Introducing the signature expression from Isle of Raasay…

95 points “A gregarious whisky with big peppery notes and a shimmering fruit core. Gorgeously woody on the palate with delectable hints of fresh herbs and a gentle peat smoke that dissolves flawlessly to reveal a beautifully long fruit driven finish.” – International Wine & Spirit Competition 2022

Set to become an iconic Island Scotch it perfectly captures the rugged nature of its Hebridean home. Isle of Raasay Single Malt was crafted using two spirits one peated and one unpeated. These were matured separately in first-fill rye whiskey casks Bordeaux red wine barrels and fresh Chinquapin oak. The latter aka Chinkapin or Quercus Muehlenbergii is the coolest new wood on the whisky-making scene. It doesn’t grow very straight so barrels are rare but they’re said to deliver a touch more tannin while brightening the fruit and adding notes of toffee and almond. The six components were then married together to create a balanced dram with immense complexity old-school smoke rich dark fruits flavours warming pepper fiery ginger salted caramel and a depth of character to render one speechless.

The Isle of Raasay can be found to the east of the Isle of Skye and its modern distillery is impressing the experts. The award-winning author Dave Broom gushed “This for me is really advanced whisky making and it’s a completely new way of thinking about Single Malt in Scotland.” So don’t miss the innovative outturn from this compelling producer.
