Love the full-bodied richness of American whiskey but missing out on the smoke in a good scotch? Corsair's complex Triple Smoke Whiskey offers the best of both sides of the Atlantic!
The distillery splits malted barley into three batches, each of which gets a different type of smoke – peat, cherry wood or beechwood. Then it's all pot distilled together, in small batches, and aged in new American oak barrels to mellow out the fire. It has the great rich, big barrel notes of wood and vanilla, but with a beautiful smokiness riding on top.
