Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46.4%
Not to be confused with 2021's R-01 release, Isle of Raasay's R-01.1 whisky is the spiritual successor to that superb 3-year-old island single malt whisky, having been assembled from both unpeated and peated barley spirits (the latter having 48-52ppm before distillation), with both spirit styles matured separately in a mix of ex-rye whiskey, virgin Chinkapin oak and first fill Bordeaux red wine casks.
Raasay distillery's long fermentations (up to 120 hours) and this complex mix of spirit and cask types give Isle of Raasay R-01.1 an almost indecent amount of complexity for a three-year-old whisky. Isle of Raasay R01.1 was bottled in May 2022 at 46.4% without colouring or chill filtration - and if you haven't tried Raasay's whisky yet, now is the perfect time to find out what all the fuss is about.
