What is Peated Bourbon? It’s bourbon whiskey that conforms to the American requirements for bourbon but is made with malted barley that has been exposed to peat smoke, a practice more common in Scotch whiskies. The malt used for the peated bourbon was grown, malted and kilned in Scotland. Therefore it’s a hybrid whiskey of two distinct traditions, flavourful and robust from having aged at least 2 years in a new barrel, with an added light smoky finish reminiscent of single-malt. If scotch and bourbon had a baby, this is what it would taste like. As far as can be determined, this is the world’s first-ever peated bourbon and will appeal to the adventurous whiskey traveler who has tried everything.
Nose: Toasted marshmallow, sea-foam candy, dark chocolate and sea salt - but very little smokiness.
Palate: Salt-forward interspersed with rich bursts of flavour. Slightly bitter baker’s chocolate, warm leather and Werther's hard candies define the palate. The body is meaty and rich. Again, peat is not a primary element but it clearly is an exceptionally complex spirit.
Finish: Leathery and chewy on the finish - white pepper and Werther's caramels linger.
