Brilliant gold color. Earthy aromas and flavors of saddle leather and soap, white chocolate toffee, banana raisin muffin, and clay with a satiny, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-long honeyed dried fruits, brown spices, minerals, and tobacco leaf finish. A complex interplay of dark fruits and leathery notes make this a fine sipping and cigar choice.

While rare, there are a handful of American single malt whiskeys being crafted today; they are produced entirely from malted barley. Based on the single malts from Scotland, the American versions also resemble their more famous whiskeys in their peaty, sweet wood notes. Like their counterparts from Scotland, serve after dinner in a small snifter.
