Raasay Single Malt

It's the flagship single malt from the Isle of Raasay Distillery, the first legal distillery to operate on the eponymous island. Peated and unpeated Raasay spirits are individually matured in a combination of rye whiskey, chinkapin oak, and Bordeaux red wine casks, before being married together for this exceptional dram. Taking influence from the older styles of Hebridean single malts, this expression is lightly peated, with a fragrant balance of dark berries and delicate smoke – superb stuff from the young distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Baked plums, red apples, and cherries lead to drying wood smoke with earthy vanilla and a hint of flint.

Palate Pebbly minerality with crisp peat smoke, sweet, dark caramel, and biscuity malt. Creamy oak and peppery barley tangle beneath.

Finish Just a subtle whiff of smoke on the finish, cushioned by salted nuts, chewy butterscotch, and sweet oak char.

Reviews for Isle of Raasay Single Malt
Very nice
I like peaty whiskies. My sister bought me this for my birthday. Wow, it's very good. The peat is there but not Ardbeg or Laphroaig level, but that's fine, it's very smooth and very drinkable. I won't pretend to tell you there are notes of coffee, dates, charcoal etc. It's just a very nice drink. I'll be keeping this for special nights

Tried a sample bottle as part of a bunch that I picked up with some vouchers for my birthday. It was an immediate 'I need a bottle of this!' on trying it. Utterly delicious.

I think it's worth 4 stars.
This is my second bottle, so it can't be too bad for me to buy it again. Slightly smoky is a bit of an understatement, I thought it was quite smoky. Which is not a complaint. I enjoyed it, for a newcomer to the market, I thought it was very nice, if a little overpriced, but saying that, most have gone up in price recently. Will definitely buy again.

Impressive dram
Introduced to this by a friend, which encouraged me to purchase. Not normally a fan of West island & Coast flavours as they're usually too earthy and smokey for me, my palate prefers Speysides. This is a cracking single malt, without having the overpowering West Coast traits.

A new favourite
Visited Edinburgh and in an excellent whisky bar was recommended a bottle of this stuff by the barman and loved it. Bought a bottle the next day i was so impressed. This is worthers original meets a little smoke. A new favourite. Totally recommended.
