It might not be peaty Scotch, but it's an extremely cool experiment with Whiskey and Islay barrel staves.

The aptly-named Infuse Spirits had its start in 2012 when Seth Benhaim began infusing Spirits in his garage at the age of twenty-five — becoming the youngest brand owner to ever win Best-In-Show and Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. He’s our kind of guy. While Infuse Spirits Vodkas and Bitters are infused with natural spices and fruits, their Whiskies are infused with staves from other barrels of a variety of wood types — from Whiskey and Sherry to Wine, Single Malt, and more. They even use exotic woods like Mizunara and French oak.

This unique wood infusion technique results in their Whiskies not only having a mash bill, but also an oak bill. Isle of Peat could only be a reference to one place, the magical island where smoky Single Malts dwell. You know it ― this expression employs staves from imported Islay Scotch barrels for its maturation. The blend of 1-year-old Wheat & Single Malt Whiskey from Indiana gets the stave treatment for at least a month in a warm environment, speeding up the process. It certainly isn't Scotch. But it's an epic experiment that's bound to tickle any smokehead's fancy. A grand total of 6,600 bottles were produced and it's taken home a Double Gold Medal at the SF World Spirits Competition.

Appearance / Color
Dark Golden

Nose / Aroma / Smell
There's a hint of peat on the nose that's gentler ― not a full-on smokiness. The wheat character is apparent and there's a touch of sea spray in there as well.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's spicy on the palate with toasted nut notes, dates, oak, and a distant campfire in the background.

Finish
Finishes with dark fruit as well as baking spice notes where nutmeg and clove stand out.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
