Tasting Notes

Bryan Davis from the nation's most controversial distillery Lost Spirits is back again with more in-your-face peated malt whisky. The difference between the two new Abomination releases and previous editions, however, is that these consist of peated Scottish new-make rather than his self-distilled Salinas spirits. Bryan was able to acquire a healthy amount of smoky Islay malt whisky, which he ran through his patented rapid-aging reactor with amazing results. The only distinction between the two expressions is the type of wood used in the reactor. The Crying of the Puma uses toasted oak from a late harvest riesling barrel, whereas The Sayers of the Law uses charred oak from the same cask type. Both whiskies bring huge smoke, lots of woody notes, and carry Davis's calling card of concentrated oak flavor with unabashed power. Think of Kilchoman on steroids with tons of chewiness. Fans of the previous Lost Spirits editions will be pleased.

    Wowsas. Such a cool concept and product. In my opinion, this is the slightly lighter bodied of the 2 expressions (Sayers of the Law is the other) due to the toasted oak vs charred oak. It has a jammy richness on the nose with a red fruit quality, almost like freshly baked pie, minus the sweetness. It has a touch of peat that balances the fruit aromas beautifully. The palate is where the magic happens; there is a special sort of rusticity that molds the spicy, fruit smoothie/apple stem and pit notes all together into a delicious adult beverage. Yum +.
