Alabama Single Malt — lightly-smoked with pecan and peach wood and aged in small, fifteen-gallon casks.

John Sharp and his son Jimmy ran a business in Montgomery, Alabama. But that business required a lot of travel. When Jimmy’s daughter Lily was born in 2014, they knew they had to start something different. They founded the John Emerald Distilling Company — the first legal distillery in Alabama since Prohibition — in the tiny town of Opelika and named it after John’s father. They make a Rum, Spiced Rum, Gin, Vodka, and their signature Alabama Single Malt Whiskey.

John Emerald Alabama Single Malt Whiskey is a true Single Malt made with a Southern flare. The malted barley comes from Ireland and they smoke a portion of the malted grain with peach and pecan wood — like a good Bar-B-Q. The rest of the grain is left dried without smoke. The distilled Spirit is placed into small, fifteen-gallon barrels to foster quicker aging. But they also put in oak chips that have been soaked in Cynthiana Wine — a unique varietal made from Norton grapes. All of this attention to detail creates a stand-out, uniquely Southern-styled American Single Malt.

Ratings & Reviews
I tried to like it, but ultimately poured it out after my second round.
I thought I was going to get something "scotch-like" but it was pleasantly different. Wish it had slightly more flavor but otherwise very good. Considering buying this for my brother in law to try.
I found this to be pleasant but unremarkable. With all of the fine choices available today I will probably not order this again.
I legitimately taste the majority of the flavors on the taste wheel. Definitely not as smoky as stated.
I normally drink whiskey straight, but needed splash of water with this. Very smooth.
Such a different flavor. It has a "sweet smoke" to it, thanks to the peach and pecan wood. Toffee notes follow with a mellow finish. It's good but so different it doesn't totally feel like a whiskey.
Brilliant, subtle, and elegant.
A very bright beginning with a nice clean finish. If you love oak, smoke and cinnamon this is the one for you.
What we have is there Double Oka Bourbon but everything I've had from them is excellent
