Located in the Los Angeles sprawl, only a mile from the Pacific Ocean, R6 Distillery maintains a focus on the quality of the spirits they produce. Having tasted an increasing number of American single malts, many of which are relatively young, I am starting to really get behind the movement. I’m partial to single malts with rich chocolatey flavors, and R6 Single Malt Whiskey highlights those in the best way. At only 86 proof, it is shockingly flavorful, with loads of rich chocolate, coffee, and toffee flavors amidst a sweet but savory sip. Don’t let its 1 year age statement fool you, if this kind of flavor profile is your jam, R6 Single Malt delivers.
