Few Spirits has announced its newest expression — Few American Whiskey.
This is a blend of the Chicago-based distillery’s bourbon and rye whiskies with an experimental cherrywood-smoked malt whiskey.
Few American Whiskey is a balance of sweet, spice and smoke, the company says, with flavors of graham cracker and honey at first sip along with rye spice notes on the bottom. Tart cherry notes follow, the company adds, with a note of smoke to round out the texture, along with white pepper and honey on the finish.
Few American Whiskey is initially available at select liquor stores in the Chicago and NYC areas and directly at the Few distillery.
The suggested retail price is $49.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
“We are constantly experimenting at Few, and our American Whiskey was a result of those efforts,” explains Few Founder and Distiller Paul Hletko. “It started with a cherrywood-smoked single malt we created, which is delicious but defied category rules. We loved the flavor of this whisky and were especially blown away by how it mingled with our bourbon and rye.”
