Wasmund's Single Malt Whiksy reviewWhisky: Wasmund’s Single Malt Whisky
Distillery: The Copper Fox Distillery, Sperryville, Virginia
Age: 15 months, label reads “Batch No. 35”
Proof: 48% ABV;  96%  proof
Notes: Copper Fox is the only distillery in the world that flavors their malt with fruitwood smoke and only the distillery in North America malts their own barley. Listen to BourbonBlog.com‘s podcast with Rick Wasmund below and on this link.
Color: Golden Orange-rust
Nose:
Lovely fragrance of leaves that have lingered throughout the Autumn and find themselves being victim of an ice storm that leaves the ground and leaves cold. Blend into this image a sweet aroma of a smokehouse.
Taste:
A diffusion of smokehouse, butterscotch, leaves and fruit wrapped into a silky wax-like flavor and velvety mouthfeel. There is nothing I’ve ever tasted with this type of complexity which strikes a note on flavor pendulum that swings between a Scotch and a Bourbon and lands itself in a pool of it’s own. There are some whiskeys which even the best whiskey taster could have some challenges differentiating from one to another. Wasmund’s Single Malt Whiskey is in it’s own class and can be spotted immediately. I love this whiskey.
Finish:
Rich and mellow. spice stays with you briefly along with the forward flavor in the front of the mouth.
