From Virginia Distilling Co. comes their American Single Malt, Courage & Conviction. Aged 3 to 4 years, about 25% in red-wine barrels, 25% in sherry casks, and the rest in bourbon barrels. On the nose this is rich and sweet with raisins, dried apricots, and coconut. On the palate it's light up front and slightly sweet but well balanced with fruit, floral, and some of the wine that you expect. Prunes, toffee, and fruit cake are present. Finishes long.
What is American Single Malt? A defined American single malt category is as simple as: whiskey distilled from 100 percent malted barley by a single distillery within the United States. It's the American equivalent to single malt Scotch.
