Lost Spirits Leviathan II Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Can Peat Go Rancid?

I love Islay whiskies of all stripes — the funkier, the better. This North American whiskey, however, is pushing my threshold for pungency. It's not the smoke that's off-putting, it's the aftertaste which really doesn't taste "right." I still have a pretty full bottle and am going to keep returning to it from time to time but I have to say this is THE single most challenging whiskey I've ever tried. And I've tried a lot.

honey, & caramel smoked mushrooms

Just tried this with friends in California. Fun stuff! It's all about honey, & caramel smoked mushrooms. Like nothing else on earth. Which for some people might be a bad thing.

Wild and Crazy

Complex, and crazy, this stuff has loads of honey flavors mixed with smoke. Like smoked honey. Totally unlike anything I have ever encountered before. Love it, but hard to grade it because it is so wild.

Truly awful

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.

@Utterly disgusting

Don't drink pleated whiskey then!

Utterly disgusting

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.

Instant collectable... if you don't drink it all first

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.

Well worth your time and effort

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