Isle of Raasay Distillery's Dùn Cana Sherry Quarter Cask First Edition Release is a captivating single malt Scotch whisky that masterfully combines the heritage of Scotch whisky with innovative cask maturation techniques. Matured first in American rye casks and then refined in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry quarter casks, this whisky is an expression of craftsmanship and the unique terroir of Raasay. At 52% abv, this robust Scotch offers a deep and complex flavor profile that is both natural in color and non-chill filtered to preserve its authenticity and rich textures.

Innovative Maturation Process:

The initial maturation in American rye casks lays a strong foundation of spicy and bold flavors, which are beautifully complemented and enhanced by the subsequent aging in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry quarter casks. The smaller quarter cask size allows for a greater interaction between the wood and the whisky, intensifying the rich sherry influences and accelerating the maturation process.

Tasting Experience:

  • Nose: The whisky opens with a complex aroma of peppery spice and dried sultanas, underpinned by subtle notes of vanilla.
  • Palate: A rich and textured palate features pronounced flavors of dried fruits and a peppery spice that transitions into darker notes of salty chocolate. The dual maturation process imbues the whisky with a balanced sweetness and a depth of flavor that is both rare and delightful.
  • Finish: The finish is long and satisfying with a lingering taste of salty chocolate and a light hint of aromatic wood smoke, which adds an additional layer of complexity to this exquisite Scotch.

A Distinctive Scotch Experience:

Isle of Raasay's Dùn Cana Sherry Quarter Cask Release is a testament to the distillery's commitment to producing distinctive and innovative Scotch whiskies. This particular expression is perfect for whisky enthusiasts looking to explore unique cask finishes that offer a complex and rewarding tasting experience.
