Wasmund's Single Malt

Wasmund's Single Malt

Official bottling
Single malt - Virginia
48% ABV

Nose: Leather, varnished oak, cherries, peanut shells, soy sauce, apples, hints of peat.

Tasting: Bitter salty. Leather, varnished oak, peanut shells, peanuts, apples, hints of peat.
Finish: Medium. Astringent, lemons, peanut shells, varnished oak.


Made using malt that was dried using apple and cherry wood. I'm not sure it made any difference. The aroma is... odd. There's peat, varnish on old hardwood, peanut shells, lots of savoury estery notes but not much that is sweet. Maybe some apples, but it's hard to find underneath all that. Then on the tongue, there's much more of the same, maybe even more nutty and savoury. That all disappears in a tart finish. Can't say it's the greatest malt in the world, it probably needs longer than 3 1/2 years in a barrel.


Not bad.
