The one that inspired it all. Whiskey Del Bac Dorado is an American Single Malt whiskey with the true character of the American Southwest. Using the Scottish model of whisky-making, Dorado is made from 100% barley that is malted and smoked over a velvet mesquite fire, mashed, fermented, copper pot distilled, aged in the desert, and bottled on site. It is one of only a handful of American Single Malts that uses velvet mesquite in the US.
Dorado is never sourced and never chill-filtered. Given a 90 Point rating by Whisky Advocate, Dorado has a nose of tobacco and chocolate, giving way to campfire embers, and finishing with soft tannins and sweet toffee on the palate.
