The smoky creature
Ladies, gents and connoisseurs of all things good,... there’s a new Whiskey collective in town that’s set to surprise and please our Whiskey senses and that it does. Whiskey Union proclaim themselves as a creative collective of Whiskey makers, visionaries and hedonists in pursuit of unconventional blends and extraordinary flavour sensations. While the established brands craft the Bentleys and the Jaguars of Whiskey—which is all fine and dandy—the fellas at Whiskey Union choose to break with convention, experiment with flavour and tread on the sporty side of things; they manufacture well-tuned Ferraris, so to speak, to keep your taste buds on the edge and your belly humming.
Smoky Goat—a blended Scotch Whisky—is the first of the three unconventional expressions they’ve released so far, the other two being Boxing Hares and Huxley. It’s named after the wild goats native to Scotland. It embodies the remote and rugged nature of the land and the tough, playful character of its goats (and people some would say). It’s a blend of 3 unique Whisky styles: sweet grain, body & character of a Highlander and smoke for which the Islay is famed for. Craig Wallace, it’s creator, envisioned the smokiest of blends finely balanced with a tinge of irresistible sweetness.
It’s handmade in small batches with three different cask types: refill, rejuvenated and first fill bourbon casks. It’s advised you serve it on the rocks so the ice slowly unleashes the smoky flavour. Our take? Smoky Goat is a most deserving homage to the Scotland’s finest flavours.
