Isle of Raasay Single Malt Scotch whisky R-02 46.4% ABV

isle of raasay single malt release 2

Two Isle of Raasay spirits, peated and unpeated, are matured separately in first fill Rye whiskey, fresh Chinkapin oak and first fill Bordeaux red wine casks.


Appearance: Light gold, diluted apple juice. Plenty of quick forming thick legs form and ooze over an already oily film.

Nose: Smoking meats, dark berries, pastry and some subtle spice.
After some time crunchy nut cornflakes and

Palate: not hugely oily but a pleasant mouthfeel.
A flash of raspberry ripple ice cream, again some subtle spice, lemon peel, honey and malt biscuits.
A tiny amount of drying seems to emanate from a sweet smoke and espresso note.

Finish: Slight drying, sweet smoke and the sharp red berry note. All but the red berry fade quickly, medium length in total.

Overall: Another good release. I remember liking the first release more but this is a great pour too.
