The Isle of Raasay Special Unpeated Chinkapin single malt is a special edition that reflects the distillery's desire to push the limits of the aromatic profile of its Single Malts and demonstrates the influence of the Chinkapin cask on its distillate. Freshly charred and toasted, these American white Chinkapin or Quercus Muehlenbergii oak barrels are a type of oak native to central and eastern North America. cThe fresh charring of the cask brings rich color and flavor to the start of the maturation process, and the high toast caramelizes the natural sugars of the wood. Expect a sweet toffee and butterscotch nose, with vibrant dark fruit flavors and rich, deep color at a young age.

Limited series.
