A Rocky Mountain Single Malt with a decidedly new American style.

Deerhammer was founded by Amy and Lenny Eckstein in 2010. They based their little high-country distillery in Buena Vista, Colorado — smack dab in the middle of some of the best ski resort in the world. They built the entire operation themselves from used dairy equipment. And they contracted an old-hand coper-making artisan who goes by the name "The Colonel" to fashion their custom, Scottish-style copper-pot still. They are a true grain-to-glass operation focused on the product and doing it right.

Deerhammer American Single Malt Whiskey is unique in a few meaningful ways. The first is that they use a combination of four local barley types in their malt. Then they use two different yeast strains to develop their signature flavor profile. It’s fermented in the open air for four to five days and double distilled in an old-school direct fire copper-pot still, and aged on-site in charred virgin oak for a minimum of two years. And this American-style Single Malt is bottled at a perfect 46% ABV because they care about us and want us to be happy.

Smartass Corner:
The term "Single Malt" does not mean a single type of barley. It means that the malted barley was distilled in a single distillery.

Harvest Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is complex and lively with notes butterscotch with a full dose of wood spice, marmalade, charred wood, and anise.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is approachable but complex, with notes of vanilla cream and orange — a little like a 50/50 bar — with dashes of espresso, brown butter, cocoa, toasted oak, and menthol.

Finish
The finish is medium-to-long with a hint of herbs.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
