Lost Spirits Distillery is located in Los Angeles, and their Sayers of the Law spirit is made with the help of 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 seasoned charred 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

"Vegetal peat and sauerkraut dominate the nose first. But don't despair, there's also a big whiff of cinnamon and smoked peppers, followed by licorice, cocoa powder and burnt coffee. The palate is very savory. Smoky barbecue notes accompanied by a hit of pepper and peat smoke, with iodine also making an appearance. Finally a whisper of strong, dark coffee."
