Del Bac Mesquite Single Malt (750 ml)

About This Item

Del Bac Dorado Single Barrel is the exact same whiskey as the except that to halt the malting process, and ready the freshly malted barley for mashing and fermentation, they use mesquite wood smoke. On islay they use peat, but down in Tucson they take a cue from the barbecue world and use mesquite wood instead… no joke. That’s where they got the idea.

Tasting Notes: 

  • Color: Copper
  • Nose: A nice complex aroma of mesquite, brown sugar, grilled peaches and nutmeg with light touches of vanilla beans and orange peels. Adding water kicks up a musky bit of sandalwood, a bit of minerality and the spice becomes more cinnamon like.
  • Palate: A heavy meaty flavor of mesquite smoked jerky, nutmeg, hazelnuts and vanilla taffy with light bits of anise, brown sugar and grilled fruit. Water make the jerky-like nature a bit more robust and an herbal nature kicks up a bit.
  • Finish: Long smoky herbal fade with bits of caramel and nuts.
