The Hearach Single Malt First Release Batch 8 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 there’s an earthiness reminding me of walking in Aline Forest here in Harris, and green ‘ribes’ from wandering further afield on Worthing Downs. I get the smell of machair flowers and shell sand, then saffron buns, fresh from the bakery. There’s vanilla too, like Brighton Pier ice-cream. With a splash of water, the spices open up, giving cloves and nutmeg from my stepdad’s cooking cabinet. More fruit notes expand – foam bananas and pineapple cubes from childhood sweet shops. And, buttercream icing from my mum’s homebaking. On the palate there’s cereal, a green start with waves of fruit and spice notes, with a leathery, smoky and liquoricey finish.”

– HARRY WOOD, DRINISHADER, ISLE OF HARRIS
