The Hearach Single Malt First Release Batch 7 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.

“On the nose I find there’s a caramel note, like when butter and sugar are melting in a pan when I’m making tablet. There’s a spicy, delicate white port aroma, and faint almonds like marzipan. There are flowers, like the wee purple flowers on a hill near my childhood home. When I taste it without water it’s silky smooth and just a very, very delicate smokiness, like the smell from the peat-burning Raeburn stove in my granny’s scullery. Adding a wee bit of water, and I get berries and meringue like an ‘Eton mess’ pudding. The fruits and spice reminds me of my mother’s auntie pouring a wee sherry and enjoying a slice of Christmas cake by the fire. There’s so much going on in my glass, it’s lovely.”

– MARIE MORRISON, STOCKINISH, ISLE OF HARRIS
