Isle of Raasay Distillery
Unpeated Ex-Bourdeaux Red Wine, cask 18/247 61.9%

ABV: 61.9
Bottle size: 70
Only 1 in stock

Tasting Note from a Cask Sample aged 34 months.
Tasted: Feb 2021
The nose is intense and winey with raw red/black fruit and hints of straw, pepper, rose petal marc and slightly grippy tannins. Unlike the previous two samples there seems like a lot less oak interaction as the cask is possibly larger. With time the fruit notes become almost fortified in character.

The palate is very youthful with loads of rose petal marc spirit and subtle winey red/black fruit. Again, not a huge amount of oak interaction makes it feel very raw and alcoholic. Masked, raw spirit, tannic finish with camphor, mint and green peppercorn.

Water brings out sea salt on the nose and makes the fruit sweeter and syrup coated. It also brings out a shredded wheat and malt note. The palate is still youthful. Again, the wine notes are subtler, but sweeter. Longer, fruity, straw-like finish with lingering softer tannins.
