Lost Spirits “Bohemian Bonfire” K&L Exclusive Peated California Single Malt 750ml ($55.99)
After the release of his first California single malts, Bryan Davis was looking for inspiration and doing a bit of soul-searching. That’s when he stumbled upon a single barrel of Kilchoman at a whisky tasting he attended. The flavors were bright, clean, and surprisingly drinkable, despite the youth of the whisky itself. When Bryan inquired into what Kilchoman’s magic consisted of, he learned that the distillery takes one of the smallest heart cuts in the business (with pot still distillation, the distiller usually takes the middle cut, dumping off the heads and tails for redistillation). Bryan didn’t add the cuts back in, however. He took a small middle cut and left it at that. That was step one. The next step was to get better cooperage. Rather than use the wine-soaked casks for extra flavor, Bryan wanted mild oak aging as to not detract from the high-quality distillate. He scrubbed out his wine barrels and cleaned profusely, leaving only the wood in its place. His new, ultra-spirit was placed into the barrel and laid down to rest. The result is the Bohemian Bonfire, the same whisky as Leviathan with a smaller heart cut and normal oak aging. It’s by far the best whisky Bryan has ever made and it’s much more mainstream without losing the Lost Spirits character. It’s also, without a doubt, the best peated American whiskey I’ve ever tasted. Only 160 bottles were made. WARNING: these are interesting whiskies that are only for the adventurous. (David Driscoll, Spirits Buyer)
