384 – Is American Single Malt Trending? Has Sourcing Been Embraced? Thanksgiving That Isn’t Wild Turkey on Bourbon Community Roundtable #74



It’s Bourbon Community Roundtable #74 and here are the topics we chose for today’s show. American Single Malts. The media is a buzz talking about them and traditional heritage distilleries are starting to release some in small numbers. Is this a trend that we need to pay attention to? It’s safe to say that over half the bottles on the shelf are sourced product. Has sourcing been embraced finally? Or do people not care and don’t know? Every year we will see Wild Turkey pictures flood social media on Thanksgiving. What should you bring to your Thanksgiving get togethers?

Show Notes:

  • Above the Char with Fred Minnick (@fredminnick) talks about Beam decanters.
  • American Single Malts have their own designation and legal wording. Is this a trend worth watching for us bourbon geeks?
  • It’s safe to say that over half the bottles on the shelf are sourced product. Has sourcing been embraced finally? Or do people not care and don’t know?

  1. I don’t think you explained how a scotch single malt refers to a single distillery and not a single grain. You can have a single malt scotch with multiple grains. American single malt is a single grain. That would a single grain scotch.
