Copper Fox, Chestnut Smoked Whiskey (750ml)
Chestnut Smoked Whiskey
This single malt was the first whisky Copper Fox’s founder, Rick Wasmund, ever made, and it remains the distillery’s flagship offering.
While a few finished single malts have been bottled over the years as single barrels, the distillery only just began selecting original, unfinished barrels for release.
This whisky is made from 100% Virginia-grown barley malted with applewood and cherrywood smoke and barreled in ex-bourbon casks with a progressive series of seasoned new and used applewood and oak chips.
Nose: Rich aromas of cinnamon biscuits, sweet pipe tobacco, roasted nuts and maple syrup
Palate: Medium-full body, sweet with an oily mouthfeel; flavours of cinnamon sugar, sweet potato, oatmeal cookies, and seasoned oak.
Finish: Medium-long and warming, notes of toffee and subtle pipe smoke
