The Hearach Single Malt First Release Batch 5 70cl 46% ABV

£135.00

Description

Each batch has natural variation due to individual choice of casks and differing ‘marrying’ periods.

The Hearach is the first, historic single malt whisky from our island distillery and the Isle of Harris. Like the iconic Harris Tweed® cloth created here for generations, our first historic whisky is woven from the hands of island people and the place we call home, intimately intertwining to produce an elegant spirit of complexity and character. This special connection between people and place continues to this day with every drop of The Hearach created by Isle of Harris hands here in the Outer Hebrides. Our recipe uses spirit matured in ex-bourbon casks, oloroso and fino butts.

I’m taken back to the local Harris pubs of my younger years. I loved the ‘yarns’ (stories) and the craic from the older guys, all the bodachs (old men) and different characters. I have a really sweet tooth so I get a lot of sweet notes, and can recall the scents and sounds of the old mobile shop vans which used to go around the villages here. Adding a wee drop of water really opens it up and I can get more of the peat. There’s a bit of tobacco in there reminding me of an old man we inherited our croft from who had a hard kind of tobacco he’d shave with a knife for his pipe. There’s a long finish, and a buttery sort of creaminess. It’s a fantastic dram
