Spirit Hound Straight Malt Whiskey
American Single Malt
Spirit Hound // Colorado, USA
This American single malt is produced using Colorado-grown malted barley. The barley is grown, malted and peat-smoked in Alamosa at the Colorado Malting Company. Every batch of Spirit Hound's whiskey is released as a single barrel. While each barrel is unique, similar underlying qualities exist in each single barrel selection. Aged for a minimum of two years in full-sized new American white oak barrels, each barrel then goes through a sensory panel prior to release.

"Notes of banana, warm baking spice, and vanilla sugar characterize the bouquet. Sweet caramel and oak with vanilla sugar carries over onto the palate. Banana comes back in the finish along with crème brûlée and burnt caramel. Subtle notes of smoke throughout. "
