    Pretty much agree. Working on my single malt, too.

    Was a little disappointed at first as I was hoping for a little more to "chew" on, but it's nice for what it is. It's like lightly toasted banana bread with maybe some bits of pineapple or green apple and then a bit of dry coffee at the end.

    I just tasted the regular American Single Malt at a festival and I was floored. Stuff was great! Definitely going to buy a bottle.

    I've been hearing wonderful things about these guys from experienced malt whisky drinkers.
