McCarthy's 6 year old (Batch MC6-21-01), 50%
Price: $100 ● Issue: Summer 2022 ● Reviewer: David Savona
With a smoky nose reminiscent of a campfire, this velvety whiskey opens up in the glass and
presents like a sumptuous barbecue, complete with charcoal smoke and long-cooked meats.
It's extremely flavorful, a 6 year old Oregon single malt from a distiller whose main release
is a 3 year old. It is lively and fun, chewy, spicy, and smoky with a touch of mint; water brings in
some sweetness that only makes it better.
