Wolves Whiskey, Undefeated’s new collab has an American Single Malt not to be missed

This is a highly sought-after release

The whiskey world is all about collaborations. The newest and most exciting collaboration is a little more unique than some of the others. That’s because it’s not a collaboration between two spirits brands or a whiskey brand and a celebrity (like Nick Offerman and Lagavulin). Instead, it’s a collaboration between Wolves, a luxury California-based whiskey brand known for its single malt whiskeys, and UNDEFEATED, a well-known sportswear brand.

This single malt whiskey is part of a limited-edition collection between the two brands that also includes apparel like a post-workout robe, a crewneck sweatshirt, a twill hat, and even a whiskey and water bottle. This isn’t the first time Wolves Whiskey has collaborated with UNDEFEATED.

“After a successful Wolves x UNDEFEATED collaboration at the end of 2022, we’re excited to partner again on another collection that emulates both brands’ identities,” James Bond, partner and creative at Wolves x UNDEFEATED, said in a press release. “Each piece reflects our shared commitment to quality, craftsmanship, and design while also converging to create a lifestyle experience our communities will covet.”

While we’re stoked for all the different items in the collection, what we’re excited about is the whiskey. The second limited-release whiskey is a 106-proof American single malt whiskey that was matured for a full six years in three kinds of oak barrels. Its mash bill consists of Skagit Valley Maltings barley and the barrels it was matured in were level 3 char, heavy toast, and medium toast barrels.

“It’s a one-of-a-kind custom liquid that cannot be replicated, even by us,” said Wolves President Jennifer Marks in a press release.

What does it taste like?

Wolves Whiskey takes itself very seriously. This isn’t a gimmick whiskey by any means. Even though it collaborated with a high-end sportswear brand, that doesn’t mean they phoned it in with this one. It’s a complex, nuanced, well-balanced American single malt whiskey. According to the brand, it begins with a nose of honey, candied orange peels, oats, and cinnamon sugar. Sipping it reveals even more flavor with a symphony of cinnamon candy, chocolate, sweet oats, graham crackers, vanilla beans, and charred oaky wood. The finish is long, warming, and finishes with a hint of spice and salted caramel. All in all, this is the type of whiskey you’ll want to sip neat, very slowly, and savor all the various aromas and flavors.

If you’ve never heard of Copperworks Distilling Company, now is the time to get on the proverbial bandwagon. Opened in 2013, this distillery is located in downtown Seattle. But, even with a tasting room and gift shop, it’s more than just a tourist destination. This award-winning outfit is well-known for its series of gins, vodka, and its small batch American single malt whiskey.

Its prowess in crafting American single malt whiskey is what we find most exciting. That’s why we were very interested to hear that the distillery was releasing not one, not two, but three new single malt whiskeys. They are Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey Single Cask No. 22-2 as well as Release 049 and Release 050.

Why adding water to whiskey works

We aren’t in the business of telling you how to enjoy your whiskey. Whether you like it mixed into a classic cocktail, neat, on the rocks, imbibed out of a ram’s horn, or even an old shoe you found by the railyard (although we’d probably advise against that if possible), we don’t care. That’s your prerogative. But, depending on the whiskey, there are a few ways to heighten the experience.

One of the best ways to heighten your whiskey-tasting experience is to add water. And no, we aren’t talking about a cup of water; we’re talking about a few splashes. Why should you do this? Keep reading, and you’ll never look at whiskey and water the same way again.
