An American single malt produced in Virginia at the Copper Fox distillery. This is made by ageing the whisky for 15 months, and the malt is dried using apple and cherry wood.
We tasted Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky at Meeting No. 24 on May 29, 2014. We rated it very highly at 3.23 out of 5. Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky is the top rated American Whiskey that we've tried.
Nose is woody and sweet with a hint of bacon pork sandwich. Palate tastes like a tree branch, you know the kind with all of the moss and lichen on it.
Toffee candy on nose; smoke; smokey savory notes up front. Reminds me of highland style malt until the smoke - more heat throughout as indicated by higher proof. Definitely the most complex of the bunch.
The smell reminded me of that woodsy aroma you get when you break open a piece of dead pine on the forest floor in the mountains. The tate gave me a sort of matcha tea vibe, sort of an earthy rice taste.
Very woody nose with a sweet, flowery smell in there. Smells how I imagine the Virginia forest's might smell near the distillery.
Fruity, smoke, wood. Slight peat, hot, medium mouth feel, back of throat lingering. Very interesting, enjoyable to drink.
Dark tree fruit, cherry, fruit leather, fig newton the nose. Some notes on the palate add syrup + candy. This is really interesting and is growing on me. Like your grandma's dusty attic, there's something vaguely familiar here. Add corn husks.
