Often when I have a customer who is looking for a Single Malt Whisky they are looking for a spirit from Scotland or Japan. But whenever the customer is looking for "something a little different" for the Single Malt drinker in their lives, or something different for themselves they usually hear from me; "Have you had an American Single Malt before?". Typically I get an intrigued look from them and hear something along the lines of "Americans make Bourbon and Rye, what do we know about Single Malts?" While geographically American Single Malts will differentiate from Single Malts from Scotland and Japan, that elegance, that mouthfeel and that finesse that Single Malt drinkers enjoy can be found in spirits made here in America. So here is a list of American made Single Malt Whiskies that are available at your favorite local wine store.

10th Street American Whisky Co. Peated Single Malt $65.99 per bottle

Double distilled peated whiskey aged in first-fill bourbon barrels. Peat is present up front, it really fills up the palate. Soft minerality and light apple notes add a brightness to the profile, the minerality brings a juiciness. Hints of toasted oak and caramel on the finish. 

Virginia Distillery Courage & Conviction Single Malt Sampler pack $25.99 each

This pack is a fun way to check out all 4 of Virginia Distillery's Courage & Conviction Single Malt Whiskies. We also have a link on our website to our Zoom video recording from a Happy Hour with Jeremy that happened earlier this year with special guest Amanda Beckwith, the Lead Blender and Education Manager at Virginia Distillery.

Virginia Distillery Courage & Conviction Single Malt Cuvee Cask $83.99 per bottle

This 100% malted barley whisky is aged for at least 3 years before bottling. Robust Dark chocolate, dry coco and toffee. Toasted caramel and softer orange zest on finish. Great mouthfeel and depth.

Del Bac American Single Malt Whiskey Dorado mesquite smoked $65.99 per bottle

Peat isn't the only way to get smoke in your whiskey! The folks in Arizona are using mesquite to smoke their whiskey and all it's missing is your bbq to enjoy it with. Nice mesquite smoke without overpowering. Dark chocolate with baking spice and toasted toffee. Darker cherry notes on finish.

Westward American Single Malt Whiskey Pinot Noir Cask $95.99 per bottle

The most popular grape in Oregon is Pinot Noir. So it only makes sense that this Portland based distillery put their single malt in some Pinot barrels. Chocolate covered cherries. Tea leaf and softer vanilla with hints of caramel to bring a slight coating feeling.

Westward American Single Malt Whiskey Cask Strength $103.99 per bottle

This cask strength single malt will get you into some trouble because it does not drink like its proof suggest. Rich dark chocolate, earl grey tea leads to hints of butterscotch and malted chocolate. Light notes of vanilla bean.
