Isle of Raasay Unpeated Chinkapin Single Cask Scotch Whisky showcases the pure and natural expressions of Scotch whisky matured in a unique type of American oak. The use of freshly charred and toasted Chinkapin (Quercus Muehlenbergii) oak casks, a wood native to Central and Eastern North America, sets this whisky apart. Unlike its peated counterpart, this unpeated expression allows the subtler characteristics of the oak and the spirit to shine through, offering a cleaner, more pronounced taste of the unique cask influence.

Unique Cask Influence:

The freshly charred Chinkapin casks impart a vibrant richness to the whisky from the early stages of maturation. The high level of toast on the casks caramelizes the natural sugars in the wood, infusing the whisky with flavors of sweet toffee and butterscotch, and imbuing it with a deep, rich color that is captivating in the glass.

Tasting Experience:

  • Nose: Sweet toffee and butterscotch dominate the nose, providing a warm, inviting aroma that promises richness and complexity.
  • Palate: The palate delivers on the nose’s promise, with a rich tapestry of vibrant dark fruit flavors such as black cherries and ripe plums. The unpeated nature of this whisky allows these flavors to stand out, supported by a smooth, sweet undertone that enhances the drinking experience.
  • Finish: The finish is long and rewarding, with a continuation of dark fruit flavors and a lingering sweetness that makes each sip memorable.

A Scotch for Connoisseurs and Collectors:

Isle of Raasay Unpeated Chinkapin Single Cask Scotch Whisky is an excellent choice for whisky enthusiasts who appreciate a purer expression of the spirit's interaction with innovative cask types. It is a testament to the distillery's commitment to exploring new frontiers in whisky production and cask experimentation.
