The Raasay Distillery is the first legal distillery in the Inner Hebrides, based on the picturesque Isle of Raasay which has just 120 inhabitants. While it waits for its own spirit to become old enough to bottle as whisky, Raasay are releasing whiskies from other distilleries to showcase its blending skills. This third release in the 'While We Wait' series is a blend of peated and unpeated whiskies from a single distillery, finished in Tuscan red wine casks.Tasting Notes (1)

- Liquorice root
Tasting notes from the producer
Surprisingly little smoke on the nose, but instead light fruity notes come through.
Instantly there is peat smoke and spice (a distant campfire, black pepper, liquorice, oak and then the sea breeze) slowly this is balanced with the dry fruit from the Tuscan red wine casks (blackcurrant, blackberry, raspberry and cherries) all blending together leaving a tantalising, lingering taste of what is to come.
A long lingering finish that on closing your eyes takes you to Raasay.
Such a cool whisky. The colour is light and pink like a Provence rose. It is unmistakably peaty but not overpowering, the red wine finish does give the whisky a great fruity character.
