For this offering, Raasay have filled an ex-Four Roses Bourbon cask with peated spirit. This Cask will have matured for 13 years by the time it is bottled in 2031.
What can we expect from this whisky? It’s early days yet, but as a first fill, we might see a lovely amount of vanilla oakiness in the cask’s flavour profile. As a peated whisky, we can also expect there to be some amount of smoke on show in the final expression.
Raasay Distillery have produced While We Wait as an example of the whisky style we might see from the island. For this award winning single malt whisky, Raasay blended two expressions; one peated, one unpeated, and finished the whisky in French oak Tuscan wine casks. Though in this regard While We Wait differs markedly from a first fill bourbon cask, it may give some hints into what to expect from this Raasay cask.
