About Wood's Tenderfoot American Malt Whiskey
An American malt whiskey, Wood's Tenderfoot American Malt Whiskey is not to be confused with a single malt. Featuring a very precise mash bill of 63% two-row barley, 9% cherry-wood-smoked barley, 6% chocolate-roast malted barley, 9% malted wheat, and 13% malted rye, it’s aged in American oak barrels. Unfiltered and bottled in small batches of 350 bottles, expect a beautifully bold nose and a balanced palate with smoky flavors, hints of tobacco, spicy and oaky notes, and the bitterness of dark chocolate. Bottled at 90 proof, this is a unique and memorable expression of an American malt whiskey.
Opened in 2012 by the Wood brothers P.T. and Lee, Wood’s High Mountain Distillery produces an award-winning range of spirits in an old auto-body shop in Salida, Colorado, at the headwaters of the Arkansas River. While their interest for spirit-making dates back to the late 1990s, P.T. used to be a river guide and homebuilder and Lee was a tech-event organizer. Using an antique copper still from 1880s Germany to produces their spirits, their collection includes three gin expressions, a vodka, two whiskies, and a new liqueur called “Fleur de Sureau”.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
