McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt
American Single Malt — Oregon, USAReviewed May 11, 2023 (edited May 12, 2023)Nose: peat, some slight bacon fat. Palate: less viscous than the cask strength. Peat is balanced well with the malt notes. Has mild salinity, a strong full mouthfeel. there's some more sweetness here. This is a much more well rounded expression (at least compared to the cask strength from Tuesday). Actually love this. Some small notes of brown sugar. There's some mild salinty, and a tiny bit of meatyness à la ardbeg Finish: some barrel char, wood tanin, mild peat phenols.
McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Single Barrel (1/9/20)
American Single Malt — Oregon , USAReviewed May 9, 2023 (edited May 11, 2023)8/13/21. 55.95% ABV; 111.9 proof; Barrel 708 Nose: initially a salty buttery popcorn, some peat, salted caramel. Maybe a tiny hint of plum or dark fruits. Palate: initial hit is a mix of smoke, sweetness, and wood. Does have a solid viscosity. Peat comes out more as you sip, its a strong earthy note. Peat here, while strong, is a very different experience from islay peat. This is a distinctively stronger decomposition notes. Adding a decent amount of water tones down some of the harsher peat decay and brings out the barrel and malt notes more. Definitely get more caramel, toffee, and butterscotch here. And a tinge of something brighter, not quite a citrus but something mildly floral. Finish: woody and peat oily. Woodier once water is added
