The Oddbins Take

They Say

Many twists and turns of innovation over the years have given way to a new limited edition of malts. 'The Rascan' is part of their Peaty Range and is named after the Rascan Spade which is used for breaking up turf to get to the peat underneath. The resulting whisky has a sweet, pleasant smokiness, with a palate that exudes rich yet gentle peat-iness, golden honey, toffee and gentle vanilla spice.

We Say

An undeniably smoky, peaty whiskey that is tempered by gentle toffee and spicy vanilla notes, making this a rounded performer. Alter Ego: Danny Archer (Leo DiCaprio) from Blood Diamond: it tells a dark story and has an intense demeanor that belies the altogether softer and more approachable side under the façade. With enough magnitude to keep us on our toes, it straddles a marvelous positions between fierceness and finesse – and, mercifully, has no hint of a dodgy African accent.
