Isle of Harris 'The Hearach' Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Isle of Harris 'The Hearach' Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region: Isle of Harris, Scotland 

Style: Single Malt Scotch



Batch: HE 00004 23

Each batch has natural variation due to individual choice of casks and differing 'marrying' periods.

The Hearach is the first, historic single malt whisky from our island distillery and the Isle of Harris. Like the iconic Harris Tweed cloth created here for generations, our first historic whisky is woven from the hands of island people and the place we call home, intimately intertwining to produce an elegant spirit of complexity and character. This special connection between people and place continues to this day with every drop of The Hearach created by Isle of Harris hands here in the Outer Hebrides. Our recipe uses spirit matured in ex-bourbon casks, oloroso and fino butts.

700ml / 46% ABV

Non-chill filtered / No artificial colouring. 

HE 00004 23: Tasting Notes

“I get sweet, florals straight away. And, caramel like the ‘Highland Toffee’ bars I bought from a wee shop at Duthie park as a boy in Aberdeen. It always had flowers outside, I couldn’t tell you exactly which flowers, but that sweet and floral smell seems to go hand in hand when I remember it. The peat is very faint, a bit like the smell in a village when one house has peat fire burning and you can just catch it from a distance. I taste Battenberg cake, and pudding like apple strudel, maybe with a bit of cinnamon. The taste lingers for a long time after, the mouthfeel is lovely, and it’s very smooth. I think the whisky embodies Harris very well, it’s unique just like the island and the people here.”
