Seattle Distillery Releases Limited Run of Peated Single Malt Whiskey Finished in Ardbeg Scotch Barrels
Copperworks Distilling has released 331 bottles of a unique peated cask single malt whiskey, finished in an Ardbeg Scotch whisky barrel.
This release was been matured for three years in a charred new American oak barrel before being transferred into an Ardbeg Scotch whisky cask, where it stayed for one year. This gives the whiskey notes of rich smoky flavor that is sure to please any fan of scotch whisky.
If you enjoy rich smoky whiskeys, this one is for you,” Jason Parker, co-owner and president of Copperworks Distilling, said. “Although this release only gets its smoky flavor from the cask (not the barley we used to brew it), it has a much more heavy smoke flavor than our Washington Peated Whiskey Release 042.”

On the nose, there are hints of a campfire, blackberry, and balsamic. The liquid has flavors of roasted apples, caramelized sugars, dried fruit, and vanilla on the tongue. Dry red vines, brisket, and iodine are among the tastes in the finish.
With only 331 750-milliliter bottles available, this expression is extremely exclusive. Bottled at 50% ABV, the Copperworks Peated Cask American Single Malt Whiskey Release 043 retails for $76.49.
