American Single Malt
Van Brunt Stillhouse // USA
Van Brunt Stillhouse, located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, is named for Cornelius Van Brunt, one of the founding fathers of the neighborhood. The distillery harkens to the days before the Prohibition, when distilleries dotted the Brooklyn waterfront. Made in deference to its Scottish cousin, with 100% malted barley. Aged in new barrels to keep the flavors bright. Sold in 375 ml only.

"The new oak expresses itself front and center, with dill, oregano and celery seed herbaceousness. Some white flower and honeysuckle in the mid palate, with banana and caramel in the finish. Stuck the landing nicely - not too hot! Tastes young, but not "green.""
