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.

Smells like hay/alfalfa and berries. I dig the berry flavor (if you do too, try Starward Two-Fold). Zero smoke, so was disappointed there. Butterscotch/woody finish. Not bad for the price but I'll try some other stuff before I come back for another bottle.
