A single malt whisky from the US of A, which is peated to an extraordinary 110ppm, placing it in the realms of Ardbeg Supernova and Bruichladdich's Octomore releases!
Leviathan II from Lost Spirits uses Canadian peat however, from a peat bog in the evergreen forests of Alberta. Lost Spirits call this 'New World' peat. It is aged in Semillon wine casks and bottled at cask strength.
Nose: Slightly vegetal, Mezcal, mossy peat, latte and cranberry juice. Specifically that smell that gets into your clothes after you've been standing near a fire.
Palate: Orange syrup, dates and figs, more peat and embers.
Finish: Burnt sugar, coffee cake, cinnamon stick and prune juice.
Overall: We're all for new things - New World peat? Why on earth not?! A North American whisky using North American peat. Unsurprisingly it differs from its Islay cousins, just as the petrology of these far removed parts of the world differ.

I tried to like this bottle. I got through roughly a third and then poured the rest down the sink. I've had single malts from outside Scotland before - Amrut and some of the Japanese varieties are very nice. This is not.

Don't drink pleated whiskey then!

Initial tasting indicates bloody band aid. Upon aftertaste, more like, flat tire with a whiff of jet fuel. Only whiskey I've dumped down the drain. Hideous.

Absolutely delicious. I'm a big peat guy, and it's true what they say about this whiskey being delightfully unlike any of its Islay cousins. Fresh, complex, and entirely unique. I certainly hope there is a Leviathan III on the way.

I've had a few of these crazy puppies and can vouch for their odd/different/new deliciousness!
