Introducing Batch 033: Triple Peat!
This blend of pot distilled bourbon, column distilled bourbon and column distilled malt whiskey was made with 3 different peated malts from 3 different UK malthouses – each one bringing their own unique, rich, smoky malt character.
After primary aging in new charred oak, the whiskeys were finished in casks from 3 different Islay Scotch distilleries – each from the southernmost part of the Isle – near Kildalton. Together, the 3 whiskeys, 3 peated malts and 3 finishing casks merge into one, peat-forward blend, with a smoky complexity that is greater than the sum of its parts.
