Barrell American Vatted Malt Whiskey
As a new category, American single malt producers are notoriously creative, looking to their local environment and regional traditions to create distinctive whiskeys. That meant the blend was a challenging one technically, bringing together a plethora of unique components. The distinctive tang of Southwestern mesquite smoke is balanced with the sweet and creamy maltiness of malted barley, briny coastal peat is contrasted with the warm vanilla character of toasted oak. The resulting blend is complex and multi-faceted, rewarding the drinker with unfolding layers of flavor.
