Rat bastard! Tha's pretty damned low!

Luckily, I swing both ways, and there's enough domestic bourbon to keep me happy!

Generally a very different style.
However some good ones to search out are:
Balcone's (Texas)
Virginia Distilling (Virginia)
Hillrock (Hudson Valley NY)

How so?

I understand there are even some peaty ones made in the US.
Can't imagine the US Singles would have the same character as the old Scottish distilleries that have been around since way back.

But, but... but... what about Parmesan cheese?!?!? At some point ya gotta say too far, this is a line that should never have been crossed. The very fundamentals of fine pasta are at stake here, not to mention pizza! Scary times, scary times...

Coming from very recent Italian roots, I know what yer sayin'! Those bottles of red from the Lazio region (the essence of the Motherland) are essential to not only a good meal, but the very consecration of such sacred events as Christmas Eve feasts, weddings, and family reunions of all stripes. Oh, the humanity!

Just like wine, completely different terroir will yield a different profile.
I know Hillrock has imported some peat from Speyside to smoke some of their locally grown barley.
However some of the peatiness in whisky from Scotland comes from local water.

My bourbon bottles always seem to empty more quickly than my scotch, but I'll take any excuse to stock up on some speysides

I very much like some American single malts as American whiskeys, but when it comes to peaty smoky, I'll take the Islays over the (good, not great) domestics. Looks like I'm gonna stock up a bit, and if needed, quite literally swallow the 25% tax until it is repealed

Montgomery Distillery here in Missoula has a really good one that they do a limited release of each year.

Oh, such sacrifice! The WTO ruled that the US can impose tariffs on $7.5 billion worth of EU goods in retaliation for illegal subsidies awarded to Airbus.

bummer... but I am more of a bourbon or brandy person myself. I suppose Kentucky or Tennessee could put tariffs on exports to CA...
