From the Hudson Valley comes this ground malted barley whiskey. Don't look at the label, see "single malt" and call it a Scotch; it's not from Scotland so that label is a no-no. This whiskey is also aged like a bourbon in brand new charred oak barrels, but a bourbon it is not. It is its own animal from the folks at Tuthilltown. If you like your whiskeys experimental, then have at it, but with a price tag of $40+ for a 375 ml bottle might have you looking elsewhere.
