We knew that the right stout recipe would yield an incredible malt whiskey, so we asked Black Flannel Brewing Co. Certified Cicerones, Dan, Justin & Chris to create the perfect mash with a particular aroma, flavor, mouthfeel, and finish in mind.
This wonderful dark malt whiskey is distilled from what is essentially an un-hopped Stout recipe. The brewers mashed and the resulting “wort” was fermented, distilled (more than once) and aged in new 10 gallon, American White Oak casks with a heavy #4 char.
EXACTLY what we wanted! The resulting whiskey is reminiscent of a smokey-oaked Highland Scotch with defined dark chocolate notes in the nose and palate. Vanilla and oak come through from the barrel, the sip is incredibly smooth with a finish that leaves you wanting another sip as soon as possible.
Black Gold received a bronze medal at the American Distillers Institute Craft Spirits Competition in California in 2021.
