Distilled from a mash of three different types of barley malt: pale ale, chocolate, and heavily-peated malt. It had a long fermentation (96 hours) using three types of yeast strains. It was double-distilled in copper pot-stills. The whisky was aged in three types of barrels: heavily-charred Quercus Muehlenbergii from Missouri, heavily-toasted Quercus Petraea from Allier, and medium-toasted Quercus Robur from Bourgogne (Burgundy). Bottled at 41.8% ABV with no chill filtration. The whisky is named for the island's most famous sons, an astronomer named Tycho Brahe (1546-1601).

Tasting Notes

"The nose is full of sweet peat and some peanuts. Ever so slightly beery. The flavor is moderate levels of roasted peated malt. Overall, the whisky is bittersweet and leaves your mouth with a swirl of peat smoke."
