Peach Street // Colorado, USA
Founded in 2005, Peach Street Distillers is Colorado's oldest independently owned and operated craft distillery. Their American Single Malt is matured in used barrels—freshly dumped barrels of their own Colorado Straight Bourbon. The peated single malt is barreled at 120 proof, is aged for an average of four years, and is then bottled at 92 proof.
American Single MaltMade in the USA from 100% malted barley. Distilled at one distillery. Matured in oak casks no larger than 700L. Distilled to no higher than 160 proof (80% ABV). Bottled at 80 proof (40% ABV) or higher. (This is the proposed Standard of Identity by the American Single Malt Whiskey Commission.)
"Milk chocolate and hazelnut on the nose à la Ferrero Rocher Chocolates, along with vanilla wafers, macadamia nuts, and hay. The peat shows on the palate, with an earthy smokiness, leather, soil, and more chocolate. The finish is a bit bitter and astringent, with black pepper, honey, chocolate malt balls, and peat. Altogether along the lines of a lightly peated Highland malt."
