Saranac Single Malt Scotch Ale

Chris Johnson/TSM

I got to try a limited edition brew this weekend from Saranc. The Single Malt Scotch Ale is a beer in the High Peaks Collection.Caught up with a neighbor while doing yard work this weekend, and he said “grab a 4-pack of the Single Malt Scotch Ale from the garage”.  And I was not disappointed!

Saranac describes it as “Ale blended with ale aged in whiskey barrels”.  To be more specific, whiskey barrels that Saranac brought back to Utica from the Tomintoul distillery in Scotland.  And it’s definitely noticeable in this 9% alcohol, malty brew.  It was a deep amber colored beer, and had a hint of sweet caramel.  But there was a definite whiskey aftertaste there too.  It certainly isn’t an “easy chugging” beer, but if you like flavor this is a beer you should seek out.  You might be able to find this at the Brewery Shop, Marcy Discount Beverage or at tasting events.  I’ve been a fan of several of the High Peaks beers and I’ll be adding this one to my list.
