Pine Barrens

Pine Barrens Cherrywood Smoked Single Malt Whiskey...$41.99 / 375ml
Master Distiller Rich Stabile first produces a mash of English style Barley Wine Ale, a heavily hopped hearty brew. With this new Cherrywood Pine Barrens, the malted barley is smoked over cherrywood fire to add an addition layer of flavor prior to the fermentation process. Not peated, but a sweet smoky aroma is added to the rich and spicy malty flavor of the small batch American Single Malt Whiskey. Double distilled in copper pot stills, an American Classic in the making.

Pine Barrens Single Malt Whiskey...$41.99 / 375ml

Pine Barrens is the first American Single Malt Whisky to be distilled on Long Island. Instead of creating whisky from a regular mash, Pine Barrens uses an actual finished 10%ABV barley wine English styled Ale Beer that has a high hop count of 70 IBU's.
The Ale beer is traditionally brewed to its perfect drinkability, double pot distilled, and finally aged in petite new American Oak casks to achieve an incredibly high quality whisky.
The result is spicy, rich velvet smooth maltiness, sweet hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, and caramel qualities on the finish. The hoppy flavor also shines through, which beer geeks will love, providing that same sweet on the tongue and smoothness throughout.
