Whiskey Del Bac by Hamilton Distillers

American Single Malt Whiskey 'Old Pueblo' [Clear]

American Single Malt Whiskey 'Old Pueblo' [Clear], Del Bac
  • An unaged, mesquite-smoked Sonoran Single Malt Whiskey
  • Grain to bottle Single Malt Whiskey produced entirely in-house in Tucson, Arizona from two-row barley
  • Barley smoked with Velvet Mesquite from Arizona’s Sonoran Desert in the manner of peated Scotch
  • Twice distilled in a copper pot still
  • The absence of barrel aging makes for a terroir-driven spirit with a profile more akin to a roasted agave distillate, like mezcal, rather than white dog whiskey
  • The nose is fruity and vegetal with plenty of Del Bac’s characteristic mesquite smoke accompanying notes of pear, mango, nopales, dried chilis, and malt wine with an earthy, mineralic palate which complements the nose with the addition of smoked sotol, bell pepper, and faint white chocolate on the finish
  • Non-chill filtered; 45% ABV
