McKenzie Pure Pot Still Whiskey
Finger Lakes Distilling // New York, USA
An American spin on a traditional Irish-style single pot still whiskey (formerly known as Pure Pot Still), this whiskey is made up of locally sourced malted and un-malted barley and aged in the distillery's own used bourbon and rye barrels. It is bottled at 90 proof. Unlike traditional Irish malts that are triple distilled, McKenzie Pure Pot Still is purposefully double distilled to keep more flavor in the whiskey.

"At first glance, the barely there pale-gold coloring leads you to believe this spirit may be, just that, barely there. Upon nosing, whisps of sweet grain and citrus rise from the glass. On the palate, this whiskey is light but has a bolder backbone than you may assume. Notes of wet stone, lemon, caramel and some more tingly grain sweetness lead to a slight white pepper and silky, cozy finish. For an Irish whiskey fan looking to delve into American whiskies, McKenzie provides a nice bridge. "
