McCarthy's single malt whiskey is made at the Clear Creek Distillery outside of Portland, Oregon. Master distiller Stephen McCarthy, a spirits pioneer, wanted to make an American whiskey in the style of Scottish Islay whiskey, but with a local twist. So he sourced peated malted barley from Scotland, distilled it in Oregon and aged it in Oregon oak.

McCarthy's was a pioneer of the single malt American whiskey tradition in the early 1990s and has received equal praise and attention in the years that followed. The 2008 release received a 96 rating (out of 100) in Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible.

The smoke is very evident, with plenty of salted butter, vanilla, and smoked ham rising first.
Deliciously smoky. He's not a peat monster but has more than enough peated character to stand alongside the big boys of Islay. Iodine, caramel apple, caramel and malt with hints of wood and popcorn make this a very enjoyable dram.
Smoked meat fades to smoky malt and campfire ash making for a nice long finish.
