Isle of Raasay Peated Ex-Bordeaux Red Wine Single Cask Scotch Whisky is a striking and innovative expression from one of Scotland’s most creative distilleries. This single malt Scotch is uniquely matured in high-quality ex-Bordeaux red wine casks sourced directly from a prestigious château in South West France. The interaction between the peated whisky and the rich, wine-soaked wood results in a Scotch with a stunning color transition and a complex, fruit-forward flavor profile.

Distinctive Maturation Process:

The journey begins with the whisky acquiring a delicate pink hue from the red wine casks, which gradually deepens to a darker red, mirroring the intensity of both the color and flavors absorbed from the wood. This process not only imparts a visually captivating appearance but also enriches the whisky with the bold and sophisticated characteristics of Bordeaux wine.

Tasting Experience:

  • Nose: Rich and inviting, offering aromas of dried fruits, sultana, and subtle peaty smoke, intertwined with hints of grape and festive Christmas cake.
  • Palate: The palate is a robust blend of bold flavors, showcasing notes of dried fruits and bread pudding, complemented by a rich backdrop of sultana and grape. The peaty undertones add depth and complexity, creating a well-rounded and engaging taste experience.
  • Finish: Long and satisfying, the finish carries through with the luxurious fruitiness and warming spices, leaving a lingering impression of a well-crafted, mature whisky.

A Unique Scotch Whisky Offering:

Isle of Raasay Peated Ex-Bordeaux Red Wine Single Cask Scotch Whisky is not only a testament to innovative Scotch whisky production but also an exquisite choice for whisky enthusiasts looking to explore different cask influences. It's an ideal selection for those who appreciate the nuanced interplay of peat smoke and rich wine cask characteristics.
