SIGNATURE SINGLE MALT R02
SIGNATURE SINGLE MALT R02 - ISLE OF RAASAY DISTILLERY
"This is our second batch of our Isle of Raasay Signature Single Malt, a more peated version following the Spring release. This is our flagship whisky and represents the signature Raasay style: lightly peated with rich dark fruits.
When we set out to create the Isle of Raasay Single Malt we wanted to bring back some older styles of Hebridean single malts that had smoke balanced with dark fruit flavours. We wanted to produce a lightly peated whisky to clearly demonstrate our island style through a subtle, fragrant smoke rather than overwhelming with peat influence.
We also challenged ourselves to produce a single malt with complexity, depth and balance that would be enjoyable to drink from a relatively young maturation right through to age statement releases. This is where, through much experimentation with wood types, we developed our unique six-cask recipe. We produce peated and unpeated spirit at different times of the year and mature these two spirit types separately in three distinct varieties of oak casks – ex-Rye Whiskey, virgin Chinkapin oak, and ex-Bordeaux red wine."
