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 we use for the peated bourbon was even grown and kilned in Scotland. So it’s a hybrid whiskey of the two traditions, flavorful and robust from having aged 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 we can tell, ours was the world’s first-ever peated bourbon and will appeal to the adventurous whiskey traveler who has tried everything.

“Tart aromas of dark fruit and wood embers on the nose. The palate is filled with flavorful smoke, barbecue rub, and smoked brisket. A long finish with an appealing ashiness, cinnamon coffee cake, chocolate fudge, and more cooked dark fruit. A soft yet spicy dram; balanced and with plenty of depth.” — Whiskey Advocate (90)
