Iniquity Whisky Silver Batch No. 008
Rich and inviting orange brown.
Fruity, herbal with roast meat and lots of rancio, charred wood and faint smoked paprika, then eucalyptus, mint and cedar/pine needles.
Rich, rounded, smoky then slightly minty, fruity and oily, all gently wood smoked.
Drying fruit and charred wood and a fading smokiness. Charred wood.
3 x Small Port Barrels with a little Pedro added for a touch of contrast, then married for three months in a larger American Oak Port Barrel. All, except the touch of Pedro, were heavily peated by our standards.
The richness is typical and the smoke isn’t obvious in the nose, yet builds to show up most in the tail of the palate and in the finish as distant campfire smoke.
