After three “While We Wait” releases, the Inaugural Release is the first actual bottling of the new distillery on the barren and remote island of Raasay, located opposite that of Skye in the Inner Hebrides, in Scotland. The company boasts an elaborate and detailed communication, which culminates in a website rich in information. The bottle of this first release is particularly well made. The distillate’s natural color is truly unique, a rosé probably due to the finish in barrels that contained French wine.

TASTING NOTES – ISLE OF RAASAY INAUGURAL RELEASE
Interesting product, but still very young and which demonstrates evident limits of integration in the influences of such different and striking barrels. Note that the price is due to the fact that the release is the first of the new distillery, therefore subject to evident speculation.
