Tasting Notes

This impressive American malted whisky is made from 100% malted barley. Inviting notes of malted barley, subtle clove and other sweet baking spice aromas greet the senses. The overall wood influence is balanced in comparison with others allowing one to taste the positive attributes of the slightly chocolatey barley, sweet corn and hints of spice from the rye.

Staff Pick Notes

This is one of my absolute favorite local whiskies. Located in Red Hook Brooklyn, Van Brunt Distillery creates whiskies tailored to the American palate. Their single malt is a superb example of just that! The nose immediately reminded me of hayrides I took as a kid. This single malt is made from 100% barley (much like scotch) which gives it a distinct barnyard quality. Don't be misled however, this single malt does not taste like Scotch! Among the barnyard qualities you'll also discover a healthy dose of woody character with a touch of spice. If you're looking for a unique local whisky or just something a little different, this is the bottle for you.
