Every gun makes its own tune and this one’s a melody of peated heat and smooth blended single malts. Having spent the first part of its life in ex-bourbon barrels, it was then married and finished in, 125 litre, peated quarter casks for a minimum of 10 months, giving this whiskey a campfire peated finish of outlaw days and sandblasted spice where whiskey was gold and justice was lead.
The smoky character of this blended malt pays homage to the spaghetti westerns of days gone by, with whiskey drawn from 3 corners of the Irish plains.
The palate offers a playful interlude between campfire smoke, bourbon sweetness and a slight salinity, followed by campfire embers, herbal spices, and cereal sweetness on the palate.
Bottled at 48% ABV, this is the first blended malt from the Whistler posse. Best enjoyed neat or over ice with your own group of banditos, outlaws, or cowboys.
