UK spirits manager Euan Campbell has been toiling away in the Vaults again and has created another rip-roaring experimental ‘heresy’ release. A blended malt, bottled at 50% ABV, from a selection of ex-Bourbon hogsheads from Islay. Following on from the success of our previous member-approval releases of Exotic Cargo, Peat Fairie, and Old Fashioned, these blended malts are designed to be fun, accessable, experimental and best shared with friends.

The blacksmith clinked and clanked industriously at the anvil, bending black metal to his will. Axes, spears and lucky horseshoes were forged in stifling temperatures in preparation for battle. We travelled from our settlement at the bay, beyond the tar pit to the battleground, where peat-bog goblins pelted us mercilessly with pears poached in petrol and flaming lemons studded with liquorice root. By the time the battle was won the sky was filled with purple plumes of heather fuelled smoke, the earth scorched, the surrounding flora ablaze. Back home we found comfort around campfires and celebrated with oysters and mead. Retiring to bed, our stone huts exuded heavy aromas of damp earth and our peat fires were at their smouldering end as we drifted off into slumber. Someone stoked the flames with camphor, eucalyptus and dried heather. By morning our PPM levels were significant.
