Unprecedented and ultra-American Single Malt.

The story of Copper Fox is a story of passion, love for Whiskey, and mad skills. Rick Wasmund opened the distillery in 2005 in Sperryville, Virginia, after years of meticulous research. All of the barley comes from one farmer and the sort of barley they use was exclusively developed for them by Virginia Tech. What a rad origin story! Then, the grain is smoked and dried with local fruitwoods instead of peat, and – get ready for this – Copper Fox is the only distillery on the planet that matures Whiskey in toasted applewood. You can’t get ritzier than that.

This bottle brings an original American Single Malt of a rich copper color and intriguing harmony of aromas and flavors. It was distilled from 100% malt mash and spent up to 18 months in ex-Bourbon barrels and was finished with toasted applewood. It's a peerless American Whiskey that will make you ask yourself: "Where was this delight all this time?!" Well, it's here now and consider us flabbergasted.

Ron
Ron,
Good aroma. Flavors kept changing during the tasting; some were good, some were not as good. I'm very divided on this one. Interesting fruit flavors, possibly apple. Noticeable amount of smoke but not too much for a scotch. At times there are other flavors that I didn't like.

WILLIAM,
Wow... very loooong finish. Orange peel, light peat, hint of vanilla, & honey stick around on the palate for the longest finish I’ve experienced with any whiskey. I plan to purchase a bottle & pair this with a cigar. The peat smoke is subtle enough (compared to some heavily peated scotch I keep on the shelf) that it begs for a cigar to round it’s toasted smokiness out properly. I can definitely see how this might be a like it or don’t like it for people. For me, it’s intriguing... I keep smacking the roof of my mouth after each sip, surprised at how long the flavors stick around, mellow, and how different flavors take turns coming forward on the finish. The initial flavors are bold enough to stand up to cigar pairing, they’ll “cleanse” between draws, and the long finish will compliment the right cigar. Did I say “cigar” too much? Cigar.

Chris,
This one was just ok in my tasting box. To me this was a whiskey pretending to be a scotch. I know, all scotch is whiskey but “not all whiskeys are scotch”. I didn’t get any of the fruit notes as I enjoyed this and tasted a very Smokey burnt taste to it. That must have been the leather and toasted notes over powering everything else. I’ve had better whiskeys and scotches.

Very strong from the start. Can’t it past the leather taste, not a fan.

Peaty.

Robert,
A little alcohol forward. A touch of water brings out the flavor, but I still wasn’t excited.

Michael,
Loved the aroma, but proved to be a little sharp for me
 
Stacey
Stacey,
Really delightful! I would never have guessed a 1 yr old whiskey could taste so smooth! It’s “comfy chair next to the fireplace” kind of sipping whiskey.
 
Victor
Victor,
Interesting nose where I could smell the smoked fruitwood. Not a fan of the olive flavor and a little harsh.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Ok, a little hard to drink.
 
Chris
Chris,
Not my favorite very smoky & peppery aroma and taste. Long finish and the after taste is not pleasant at all.
 
Doug
Doug,
A friend and I thought this was by far the best combination of flavor and spice in the Single Malt taste box.

Daniel,
It goes down alright, not my favorite, but the aftertaste is revolting.
 
Alex
Alex,
Unfortunately, too fruity and sweet for me. It’s cool to hear about the story of distillery and all the unique things they’re doing, but I can’t say I enjoyed it. It tastes like fruity syrup...hopefully their other whiskies are better...
 
Bruce
Bruce,
Sharp on the nose. Smoke and Pete mix with some subtle rye notes. There is some sweetness but that is muddled by the other flavors.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Strong peaty flavor. Okay sipper.
 
Rex
Rex,
Flavor of whiskey mixed with a campfire. Liked it at first but not sure I can finish the bottle. This is definitely a slow supper.
