WATERFORD Peated Lacken


This Single Farm edition is crafted using barley from the Lacken farm and Irish peat harvested in County Kildare. Heavily peated (57 ppm), this single malt expresses a vivid, saline, oily, and robust peat character, balanced by notes of white fruits, green tea, and hay that bring remarkable freshness. It can be compared to the Waterford Peated Woodbrook, which is even more heavily peated but features much fresher notes, including citrus, meadow flowers, and spicy undertones. The use of 100% Irish peat marks a return to a certain tradition, as it was the primary means of heating for the people of the island for centuries. It’s the first time in generations that Irish whiskeys have been made in this way.

Led by the renowned Mark Reynier, the Waterford distillery places a renewed focus on barley, at the heart of the final aromatic profile of a single malt, through an ambitious triad of Terroir, Traceability, and Transparency. Inspired by the greatest winemakers and leveraging the incredible richness of the Irish terroir, coupled with elite and avant-garde production methods, they work with non-conformist and iconoclastic farmers whose values and way of life are centered around respecting the land and seeking true flavors rather than crop yields.

Palate : Full-bodied and velvety. Grist, driftwood, campfire, and creosote. Sheep’s wool and Lapsang Souchong black tea. White peach and applesauce are juicy, providing a perfect balance to the pronounced palate.

Finish : Smoky and smoldering. Complex cigar tobacco notes, green tea, and tar.
