Isle Of Raasay Reveals Single Cask Single Malt


London-based bottler Berry Bros & Rudd has released a single cask single malt from Scotland’s Hebridean Isle of Raasay Distillery, which only recently began production in September 2017.

The 2017 Raasay single cask #23 spent three years in a first-fill ex-bourbon barrel, then was split for six months into two sherry casks – ex-Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez (PX) casks – before being bottled at 56.1% alcohol by volume [112.2 proof] and is said to contain notes of apricot, orange, peat smoke, Sauternes wine and spice.

Only a mere 240 bottles of 2017 Raasay single cask #23 are being made available for $155 per bottle.
