A Washington-born malt whisky, Scythe & Sheaf at eight years old is also Washington's most mature single malt.
Crafted predominantly from Washington-Select pale-ale malt, with chocolate, crystal and caramel malts also appearing in the maltbill, this single-malt whisky exhibits notes of toffee, nut and chocolate and apricot.
Owing to the whisky having been finished for six months in freshly emptied late-harvest Sémillon casks, a discrete sweetness made this malt whisky complete.
The review by The Whiskey Wash summed it up this way:
Scythe & Sheaf single malt "is a rich, mellow whisky that lives very much in the Speyside/Cognac realm: rounded, cohesive; prizing harmony and integration over massive flavor intensity....this whisky is well and intentionally made, with a clear point of view and distinctive story.
4.5 / 5.0"
