Spirit of Lewis is single malt spirit from the Abhainn Dearg distillery on the Isle of Lewis. Bottled from a single cask at 46%, Spirit of Lewis has been aged for less than three years and therefore cannot legally be called whisky.
Dear God. Just don't.
I have never poured away a measure of whisky before but this is just vile. The overwhelming nose and taste is of burnt bike tyres. There is some sweetness hiding behind there but it is completely masked by the overpowering taste. One to be kept for visitors you dislike.

Very disappointing indeed. A someone who likes whisky and tries whiskies from all over the world, this one let me down. A wild wind swept Scottish island looks a sure fire recipe for a winner but this is no Kilchoman. The taste was vinegar like and It takes the record as the bottle I most regret buying. Indeed. It is the only whisky/spirit I am sorry that I have spent my money on. Sadly my friends agreed and I still have half a bottle left.

Promising dram that shows signs of becoming another well regarded Island malt although it will be another decade before its full potential can be judged.
