Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky Reviews

Awful

Sorry, but this is nasty stuff. Strong, strong smell and taste of leather. Two of us tried it, both stopped after one sip because of the seriously disturbing flavor. I paid a lot for the bottle but am pouring it down the drown right now.

Great

I like the grain taste. It's similar to Montana pure malt which you can no longer find. At first i didnt like it. Tried it a second time and now its a favorite.

Good sipping whiskey

Fantastic smoke flavor

Unique - Keep an open mind

Got this as a gift. It is one of the most unique whiskies I've experienced. Sweet, waxy nose with lots of tea notes. Think green tea mixed with barn yardy puerh too. Some smoke, fire place, buttery barley sugar, wet grass, hay in a barn -- taste is sweet up front, some caramel, waxy, white pepper, smokey bbq sauce that's lightly sweet and the finish is cherry cola and more barley sugar with some cereal notes. I like it -- I'm not always in the mood for it but when I am it's very enjoyable.

Fits My Taste - Loved Every Sip

Try it! I really liked it neat, no ice, no water.

16th January 2018

Meh

So, to me, the nose was sweet, like fruit and oak, and a touch of leather. Legs on my glencairn ran slow, so I assumed it was aged awhile. The taste was not as expected. Initial impression was a lot of smoked wood, and as it settled, it reminded me of pipe tobacco. Very harsh on the palate. After adding a drop of water, it mellowed, but still tasted like pipe tobacco, which, isn’t horrible, but I wouldn’t spend 75 on this bottle, when I could have 18 year old glenfiddich.

Not for prime time

As I am from Virginia, I wanted it to be amazing. However, the only thing that amazed me is that anyone has finished a glass. The nose is that of spent wood on a camp fire lit with old motor oil. The flavor is a mixture of rubbing alcohol soaking in freshly cut oak. I keep looking for caramel, coffee, or vanilla on the nose, but all i find is that smell when the fire needs to be put out, my water bottle is empty and my bladder is full.

Unique among American whiskies.

In my experience sharing this with Scotch lovers the reaction seems universal - they don't like it at allo equate single malt with Scotch here is to miss the point entirely - this is an all-American. The malted barley is smoked with apple and cherry wood, it's barreled with apple and oak wood chips suspended in a "tea" bag. The short aging (20 months for mine) leaves it a bit rough on the finish but the aroma and flavors of the wood linger on for hours. I've never tasted a better whisky to sip around a campfire, it just seems to fit with the swirling smoke.

For those that have tried this in prior years, there was a lot of variability from batch to batch even up through 2015, but in a recent visit to the Copper Fox Distillery our guide indicated that they have settled in to a fixed formula now so that what we are tasting now is what the product should be going foward.

This has earned a permanent place in my limited cabinet - it's unique and aggressive flavor profile sets it apart from any other spirit on the planet. I suspect any taster could pick this one alone out of a blind tasting lineup, even while struggling with subtle differences between others. For better or worse! And for me, the rich potency of this one make it essential.

Wanted to like it, but I don't

Our local liquor store is selling this for $42 and the owner really hyped it. Alas, it has not lived up to the hype. I'll grant that it has some unique flavors and the finish is smooth, but there's also an overwhelming harshness that is very unpleasant and a chemical flavor that I don't care for at all. I'd advise trying the 3cl sample before committing to a bottle. In my own opinion, there are many better options at this price point.

Excellent

Priced with mass market, taste and finish of top brands.

Firewood

It tastes found, and has a very distinct character. In the aroma and flavor I get an overwhelming firewood note. It's nothing like peat, and reminds me of a night in the country with some whisky and a bonfire. Nevertheless, I would prefer to leave the fire in the pit and not in the bottle. It's a decent whisky and something different but probably not something I would revisit again. NOTE: I had a dram from a friend's bottle that had been opened for a considerable amount of time(about a year) so flavors and aroma have probably changed and mellowed.

It's something

I have to agree with the other reviewers, while it is an interesting taste I do not think I will buy it again. It will also spend a lot of time at the back of the liquor cabinet and I will only pull it out when my mortal enemies come to visit. I just didn't like the taste at all. Terrible smell to start with, smoother than expected for its age, and it finishes with minimum impact. Try something else if you can.

Brash, distinctive

I wasn't expecting much out of an American single-malt that sold for under $30 USD. But I was intrigued - after all, it's all malt, pot-stilled, bottled at 48% ABV and non-chill filtered. The barley is dried using fruitwood (apple and cherrywood) smoke. You can definitely pick up the cherry on the nose, but it's an odd scent, a bit foul, like burning tires. It has decent mouth feel, smoother than you'd expect for being aged a little more than a year. The finish is woody and lingers.

A little water will help put out the fire, and will ease the assault on your senses. I liked the dram more (or disliked it less) as the glass emptied, but longed to cleanse my palate with something else. It'll go to the back of the cabinet for now and perhaps make its way out when daring guests are eager to try something very different.

Not for everyone...unique

I've been accustomed to the 'normal' single malts---regardless if it's from Scotland, India, or Tasmania. This one is quite different. You can definitely tell it's young, and surprisingly smooth for something that young. Reminds me more of a 10 year old than a 15 month old.
Try before buying...not for everyone. Not sure I'd buy again, but it was worth the experience.

Like nothing you've tasted before

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.
