The first of four heavily peated single malts chosen to portray the Weird Sisters in Livingstone’s Macbeth series. As the witches remain un-named in the original text, bottler Elixir Distillers has chosen to keep the origin of this whisky mysterious on the label. However, they have hinted that Pedro Ximenez casks used to mature The First Witch were filled at a distillery on Islay’s Kildalton coast.

 

This series of Shakespearean Scotch whiskies is the product of a collaboration between design studio Livingstone, whisky writer Dave Broom, Elixir Distillers and the legendary illustrator Sir Quentin Blake.

NOSE
Juicy oranges, plum tart, candied lemon and sultanas give way to marine notes of driftwood, bonfires, seaweed and salt
PALATE
Pure sweet peat. Dates wrapped in smoky bacon, herbal honeys, black pepper, and burnt orange all wrapped in a thick layer of peat smoke. Notes of wool, smoked oysters, and iodine emerge over time
FINISH
Tarry and peppery with dried fruit, dark chocolate and drying oak
COMMENT
An intriguing combination of sticky fruit and rich smoke. Immensely satisfying
