Tasting Notes

"Grassy gold in color and whimsically peaty on the nose. Rascan opens up with hints of stone and earth. On the palate you find layered whisps of peat smoke, honeysuckle, vanilla, a hint of leather and salt. A light, lingering finish leaves you wanting another sip. You'll find this a pleasant introduction to peat if you haven't delved into it much or a pleasant reprieve if you love peaty whiskies and are looking for something light-hearted for an afternoon pep in your step.
