Brilliant amber color. Funky aromas of caramel and fruity pebbles, parmesan rind, cedar chips and mint, and sweet yogurt with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, medium-length eucalyptus and cigar wrapper, Newport cigarettes and sanded wood, anise and nutmeg, and caramelized banana and prunes finish. A lightly smoky American whiskey with a big herbal kick.

American Single Malt Whiskey

Spirits Glass Glencairn Canadian Amber.jpg
Serve in a Glencairn Ganadian Whisky Glass
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.
