I have been exposing myself to more and more single malts recently. In the past, I was more of a bourbon and rye whiskey enthusiast. However, now I am enjoying single malt whiskeys more often. This is why I am glad I was introduced to Big Moustache American Single Malt Whiskey.
Although this is an American product distilled in Tennessee, Big Moustache American Single Malt was distilled in columns and malted on the ground in the traditional way found in the United Kingdom. The result is a light and airy malted whiskey with moderate complexity.
Pleasingly mild malt. Light fruit. Somewhat lemony. A little bit of ethanol, too. Pear. Pleasingly soft and smokey malt. Herbal spice is way below the other notes.
The palate is light and airy—honeysuckle sweetness. A mild smokey malt that is aged 3 years in ex-bourbon casks, Big Moustache American Single Malt is a relaxing, refreshing, and enjoyable pour—malted milk ball chocolate.
The finish of Big Moustache American Single Malt reflects the palate but is a bit dryer and smokier. The length is modest and what you would expect for a 90-proof whiskey.
