What's in a name? Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Wasmund's Single Malt Whiskey, rather than whiskey.
I am fairly new to the world of whisky but I have tasted most of the "mainstream" whiskies. The Wasmund's is unlike anything I've tasted thus far. For me it has the most distinctive taste of any whisky I've tried so far. A nose, taste and finish you won't mistake for anything else. My first dram was just OK but I have grown to like it more and more. It's worth the price just to have this incredibly unique American single malt. Very pleased to have found it. I'll keep it in the collection long term, for sure - it's that unique.
