Bright golden amber color. Smoky aromas of sea salt, olive oil, flamed orange peel, Douglas fir, singed quassia, leather, and raisins in honey with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, interesting, medium-long dried mint, lavender, rosemary, thyme, green peppercorn, and eucalyptus finish. A vividly spicy and herbal American Single Malt with world-class depth and balance; a very memorable dram.

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.
