Isle of Raasay Peated Ex-Rye Cask Scotch Whisky offers a compelling fusion of Scottish distilling artistry with American rye whiskey character. This distinctive Scotch whisky is matured in ex-rye whiskey casks sourced from the renowned Woodford Reserve Distillery in Kentucky, renowned for its high-rye mash bill. This unique aging process imparts a bold and spicy complexity to the Raasay's naturally peaty flavor, resulting in a whisky that is both innovative and deeply rooted in whisky tradition.

Heritage and Craftsmanship:

The use of ex-rye casks from Woodford Reserve allows the whisky to absorb the distinctive peppery and spicy notes typical of American rye whiskeys, blending these with the traditional peaty profile of Scotch from the Isle of Raasay. This maturation technique not only enhances the flavor complexity but also bridges two distinct whisky-making philosophies.

Tasting Experience:

  • Nose: Rich and inviting, characterized by an intense aroma of peppery spice, complemented by undercurrents of fruit and butterscotch, providing a warm and inviting introduction.
  • Palate: The palate presents a robust tapestry of flavors, where the sharp, spicy bite of rye intertwines beautifully with the smoky peat typical of Raasay whisky. Notes of dark fruit and butterscotch add depth and sweetness, balancing the overall intensity.
  • Finish: The finish is long and memorable, marked by a continuation of spicy, smoky flavors that gradually mellow into a sweet butterscotch residue, leaving a lasting impression that invites another sip.

A Unique Scotch Whisky Expression:

Isle of Raasay Peated Ex-Rye Cask Scotch Whisky is a celebration of global whisky heritage, ideal for enthusiasts looking to explore unique cask influences on traditional Scotch. It is perfectly suited for sipping neat, allowing the complex interplay of peat, spice, and sweet notes to unfold elegantly.
