Craft spirits are an intriguing thing, they’re made in very small batches and this allows the distillers to take risks and be creative.
Now, creativity isn’t always a good thing. Look at the music created by Yoko Ono for example. That’s bad creativity. The flip side of that creativity-coin is stuff like Bon Iver, Banksy, Dieter Rams and this, Corsair Triple Smoke Single Barrel American Malt Whiskey.
They take 3 fractions of malted barley, each smoked by a different fuel – cherry wood, peat, and beechwood – to craft this deeply complex whiskey that is almost but not entirely unlike anything you’ve every tried. Probably.
