Lost Spirits Distillery Seascape Single Malt Whiskey 750ml

SKU #1109786

Bryan Davis used to be the distiller for a small Spanish operation known mostly for their Obsello absinthe. Since 2009, he's been living outside of Salinas where he's build a custom, steam-powered still by hand alongside a hand-built smoker. By taking organic California barley and importing peat from Canada, he's managed to craft a small collection of smoky, locally-produced single malt whisky with ppm levels that compete with Ardbeg and Octomore. Aged entirely in California wine casks, these whiskies are completely unique and undeniably geeky. The Seascape is the lighter of the two in both color and smoke flavor. The peat really dominates the flavor and not with just the standard campfire element. The essence of the peat, earth and moss, entangles itself with the beery flavor of the young whiskey with the richness from the late harvset Cabernet cask imposing itself on the finish. It's bottled at cask strength, unchillfiltered, and it's reasonably priced. While it's definitely not Laphroaig, it's not trying to be. Bryan is creating an entirely different genre of single malt and I think five years from now we'll all be kicking ourselves we didn't buy more of the early collectables. Easily one of the most fascintating whiskies of the past few years and a giant signal that California is slowly carving out its own single malt niche. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)
