Wasmund’s Single Malt Whisky
Gold Medal — 92 Points

Tasting notes: Rich amber copper color. Intriguing aromas and flavors of suede, olive tapenade, honey, dried fruit chutney and clay with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and long, spicy orange marmalade on rye toast and root beer float-like finish. Distinctively flavorful and a great choice for artisan cocktails or sipping. (Tasted Feb. 26, 2013.)


Copper Fox Rye Whisky
Gold Medal — 94 Points

Tasting notes: Copper color. Vibrant aromas of clay, butter roasted chestnuts, pickling spices, and rye grain sacks with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a honeyed rye toast, peppery spice, cola, fig, and mineral laden finish. A spot-on, wonderfully balanced rye whisky for all applications and occasions. (Tasted Feb. 26, 2013.)
