Copper Fox owner Rick Wassmund’s Virginia single malts have been getting better over the years. This bottling has a light and malty nose with notes of vanilla and dried grasses. The taste is mild at first, with a mild and malty pepperiness that builds slowly and continues to the finish. The spiciness sits on the tongue as it fades away. This dram is almost too smooth, lacking some of the bite that gives single malts their character. Still, it’s an excellent dram.
