Clear dark amber color. Smoky aromas of smoking rosewood, sandalwood and crisp apple, wild cherry and ripe melon, and horse saddle with a supple, crisp, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long cigar, charred vanilla bean, rackhouse, and baking spices finish. A deep-woods, smoky American Single Malt for sipping in a leather chair.

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.
