Sweetness hits up front in the form of dark agave syrup followed by a roast almond note. Then comes the salty savouriness and earthy but very well integrated and subdue peatiness.

Production, ageing notes & comments

16 February, 2024

Its name hails from the old blues song by John Lee Hooker made famous by the Doors cover version in the 60’s. This is, without a doubt, the most umami flavour you’ll ever get from a whisky due to its incredibly abstract and obscure maturation regime. This whisky sees Highwayman’s peated spirit aged in a 125L Mexican PX sherry cask before being finished in a Black Snake reposado (aged Australian mezcal) barrel giving it a superb savory sweetness unlike anything you’ve ever tasted!
Bottled unfiltered at a cask strength of 55% this batch yielded 150 bottles.

Dan Woolley.
