Retired — 2020 Single Cask #6: Whiskey Del Bac

Three sides of the desert: Fruity

This is the second in a trio of casks we selected from Whiskey Del Bac in Tucson, Arizona. The distillery’s founder, Stephen Paul, used to make ornate furniture out of mesquite wood. Now Whiskey Del Bac uses that same mesquite wood to smoke barley. The distillery is a pioneer in this process, a distinctly Southwestern take on the long tradition of peat-smoked barley. You’ve heard of peated single malt. This is mesquited single malt.

This whiskey was made from 100% malted barley, 60% of which was smoked with mesquite wood. It was aged in a used cask for two years and is the most fruit-driven of the three casks we selected. It has a spicy, rich flavor, with hints of barbecued red fruit. Tastes like a hot desert evening, or at least like you would enjoy drinking it on a hot desert evening.
