Our very first release not only marks the beginning of Barrel Beast but also stands for a unique symbiosis of the most exquisite elements of the whisky world. Smoky peat, the warm-sweet-tart taste of sherry and the excellent character of Caol Ila. In addition to this harmony of ingredients, M.A.L.T. also stands for the proud creators of this remarkable bottling.
Nose – Smoky dark, fully ripe cherries with a tart, beeswax component. As if you were roasting juicy cherries over a peaty campfire. Like a good Blood and Sand, so exactly how you would imagine a beast on the coast.
Palate – Tart herbs with a great round warm peat taste, hints of fresh smoked ham. Spicy black pepper. Followed by a subtle charge of caramel and Brownie, a cherry-peaty finish rounds off the flavour.
Finish – Peaty, almost medicinal, a warm sweet and a medium long finish, slightly oily. Caramelised spicy chilli. The warm, smoky-sweet aroma lingers in the mouth for a long time and make you want a second round with the beast.
Character – Not for the faint-hearted or beginners. This dram will leave you reeling, the Caol Ila spirit is beautifully matched with the Oloroso casks. We want to demonstrate the exceptional quality of casks we source. The kind of dram that makes you fall in love with peated whisky.
