Lost Spirits Distillery is located in Los Angeles, and their Crying of the Puma spirit is made with groundbreaking new technology. Owner Bryan Davis bought 12 to 18 month old spirit from a Scottish Islay distillery, and then treated it in his THEA One Reactor with late harvest riesling toasted oak. After six days of treatment, Lost Spirits claims it has the same chemical fingerprint as a 15-year-old whisky. As Scotch whisky must be aged for at least three years, Lost Spirits classifies this as a "spirit distilled from 100% malted barley".

Tasting Notes

"The nose opens up on notes of young vegetal peat and sauerkraut, which is reminiscent of Ledaig Whisky. There’s also plenty of sultanas and caramel, and treacle too. Quite enjoyable. The palate reveals salty seaweed and plenty of iodine, as well as a big hit of peat. Lots of brine, and also ash and espresso. Finishing on iodine, salt and peat, this lingers for a long time."
