Wholly Shit Rye Whisky (smoked w burnt sheep dung)
THIS batch of smoky Rye Whisky was made couple of weeks apart from the previous release featured on Gordon Ramsay's Tv show: Uncharted.
The malted rye grain for this 100% Rye Whisky was smoked by burning dried sheep dung.
Belgrove sheep eat the spent grains from the distillery, their dung fertilises the farm and some of their dung is burnt. Ultimate recycling.
Despite the thought, dried sheep dung is similar to dried peat, they are both partially decayed vegetation.
The phenol notes are quite obvious but delicate, there is a honey sweetness and quite a fruity nose.
Typical spicy, peppery rye notes.

Note: This is not the Gordon Ramsay Edition, although identical in every aspect.
