The Hearach Isle of Harris Single Malt Whisky 700ml
The Hearach is the first, historic single malt whisky from our island distillery and the Isle of Harris. Like the iconic Harris Tweed cloth created here for generations, our first historic whisky is woven from the hands of island people and the place we call home, intimately intertwining to produce an elegant spirit of complexity and character. This special connection between people and place continues to this day with every drop of The Hearach created by Isle of Harris hands here in the Outer Hebrides. Our recipe uses spirit matured in ex-bourbon casks, oloroso and fino butts.
HE 00002 23: Tasting Notes
“At first, I smell clean oak smoke like the curing smokehouses back home in Poland. There’s a spiciness and a sweetness, like smoked plums which not many people from Harris will know! There’s heather, like the fragrance from the hills when I’m out taking photographs. When I drink it, there’s more sweetness like a creme brûlée and I taste freshly picked green apples, very sharp. There’s a gentle saltiness, like licking your lips after walking on one of our windy beaches. The finish is long and smoky. When I first moved to the island I would drive around in winter with the windows down just to get a beautiful whiff of peat fires burning, now I can find it in my glass.”
