From Prádlo Distillery in the Czech Republic, this single malt is a vintage release distilled in 1989, before the fall of the Berlin wall. Hammerhead 1989 is distilled from malted Czech barley that was then milled using a hammer mill, hence the name. After 23 years maturing in casks of Czech oak, it's bottled at 40% ABV. Your best bet of finding a bottle is via duty free.

Tasting Notes

"Sweet honeyed bourbon-y aroma with rich malty notes, lemon cake and some mineral tones. Its velvety texture on the mouth offers some fruity hints of cooked pears, more malt and wood spices."
