McCarthy’s Oregon Single Malt Whiskey


McCarthy’s Oregon Single Malt Whiskey is of the Islay tradition of Scotch whisky. Made from 100% peat-malted barley imported from Scotland and distilled in a Holstein pot still using one pass distillation, this premium, non-chill filtered product is then barrel-aged in air- dried Oregon oak barrels.

The present bottling is aged 3 years (minimum) and the result is remarkably smooth for a 3- year-old whiskey.

Clear Creek Distillery purchases the finest malted barley at Port Ellen in Islay, Scotland, and imports it into the United States. Once the malted barley has been imported, it is milled, mashed and fermented into a craft beer by the Widmer Brothers, a Portland-based microbrewery. The wash is hauled to Clear Creek Distillery, where it is distilled in a single pass through his Holstein copper-pot still.

McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey is a marriage of Scottish ingredients together with American ingenuity. 


“The overall texture borders perfection as it is both soft and firm, yet neither... [McCarthy’s] Still the guiding star by which all other micro distilleries must follow: a kind of World Whiskey mile and sign post...” 96 points.  Jim Murray’s, The Whisky Bible 2016.

"3 year old peated malt whisky, aged in Oregon oak. Rich nose of peat—burning leaves, a touch of sweet diesel—and fresh oak. There's no stinting on the peat; it's young, it's in your face. Not just peat: creamy malt makes a solid floor and an exit that may be the most complex part of the experience. Refined." Whisky Advocate: (Vol. 22, #4)

[McCarthy’s Oregon Single Malt Whiskey] “An American masterpiece..and now an institution. This is, unquestionably, the finest bottled whiskey I have tasted anywhere in the world from a small-batch distiller.” Jim Murray’s, The Whisky Bible 2010.

“... stylistically somewhere between Bowmore and the monsters on Islay’s south shore... It is nothing less than a superb peated whiskey, able to stand toe-to-toe with any young Scottish malt, and likely best more than a few of them.” Jay Erisman and Lew Bryson, The Malt Advocate -First Quarter, 2009.
