Clear golden amber color. Funky aromas of honey butter, southern biscuit, banana peel and smoked gouda, and candied walnut with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-length candied ginger, cherry cordial, marzipan, and frosted spice cake finish. Delicious candied flavors shine in this complex craft whiskey.

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.
