It’s clear that New Holland’s expertise in brewing beer carries over into how they pull out flavors in their malted whiskeys.

Zeppelin Bend Single Barrel is an American single malt whiskey from the New Holland Brewing Company out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Known for their Dragon’s Milk Beer and recent introduction of Dragon’s Milk Bourbon, their Zeppelin Bend American malt has been around since 2007. This single barrel is full of punchy spice thanks to its 125 proof. A theme of bold cherries, various malts, and spice runs throughout the sip. It’s an interesting take on American single malt. While I found the high proof contributed to an almost overwhelming amount of spice, it’s clear that New Holland’s expertise in brewing beer carries over into how they pull out flavors in their malted whiskeys.

The bottle being reviewed comes from barrel number 14B27.
