Description

HOW TO BUY: Due to the anticipated excitement and demand for our new releases 137.1, we’re inviting members who would like to buy a bottle to enter our lucky draw, where we’ll pull names at random from our hat. We’re introducing this based on members’ feedback on similar releases. We know some members will be disappointed, but we feel this is the fairest option for everyone interested in buying a bottle.

Please note: All entries must be received by midnight on Thursday 11 October, as we’ll be notifying winning members the next day. All winners must then contact us by 10am on Monday 15 October, otherwise we’ll pull another name from our hat. It’s one bottle per member, which we strongly suggest you open and enjoy – don’t be that member who puts their bottle straight into auction!

A fascinating and unusual nose, unlike any other peated malt whisky. Big notes of smoked custard, German rauchbier, smoked trout, hessian, coal dust and hot zinc. A muscular yet extremely precise profile. Further notes of corn starch and some rather raw farmyard qualities as well. With water there’s smoked leaves, simmering spices and wood ash. The mouth is immense! A foghorn of raw, earthy, unadulterated peat blares out at you. Almost carbolic in character with a massive carpet of smoke. Underneath there are fresh herbs such as thyme and bay leaf, even some lighter floral aspects. But the whole is intense, deep and powerful. Water brings a more fragrant smokiness, touches of leather and a mineral-flecked earthiness. Quite a ride!
