Description

The Langatun Old Bear Smoky is a peated Swiss single malt whisky and a tribute to Jakob Baumberger who, in 1857, founded a distillery on his father‘s farm and also took over a small brewery as well. During the following period the brand logo of his brewery was a bear, the Old Bear. The Old Bear is brewed and distilled in the same way as the Old Deer but with peated barley malt. The peating process is the same as for meat or fish: during the drying process of the malt smoke is added to the drying air and the smoke aromas are integrated with the malt and carry on into the finished product.

The Old Bear is aged in oak casks previously used for the maturation of French red wine from the Chateauneuf–du–Pape area, a massive dark red wine. The cask strength version of this release was rewarded with 96 out of 100 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013.

This release is 5 years old and was distilled in June 2012 and Bottled in February 2018 at 40% ABV.
