Lost Spirits Distillery's Leviathan II. Photo ©2013 by Mark Gillespie.This is a rare whisky from Lost Spirits Distillery: a California single malt made with peat from Alberta, and matured in Sémilion wine casks from Monterey County. The nose has a mild peatiness, along with notes of honey, red grapes, buttered popcorn, and ginger root. The taste is thick and buttery with strong black pepper and mild peat smoke, a hint of red grapes, and a touch of ginger. The finish is dry and sweet with a touch of peat smoke. A very unique whisky.
