What is Peated Bourbon? It’s whiskey that conforms to the American requirements for bourbon but is made with malted barley that has been exposed to peat smoke, a practice common in scotch whiskies — in fact, the malt we use in our Peated Bourbon was even grown and kilned in Scotland. So it’s a hybrid whiskey of the two traditions: the high-corn mashbill and new-barrel aging produce a spirit that is unmistakably bourbon, while complimentary notes of barbecue and campfire smoke linger long after the sip. If scotch and bourbon had a baby, this double gold medal winner is what it would taste like.

“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)
