Corsiar Triple Smoke Whiskey at Corsair Distillery, in Marathon Village. / SAMUEL M. SIMPKINS/THE TENNESSEAN
Move over Jack Daniel's - another Tennessee whiskey company is taking the spotlight.
Nashville's own Corsair Distillery won Whisky Advocate Magazine's Artisan Whiskey of the Year for its Triple Smoke.
To make that smokey flavor, the company used three factions of malted barley, each smoked by a different fuel. The whiskey also was pot distilled and barreled in new charred oak.

This may be the latest award, but Corsair is not unfamiliar with national praise. In April, Corsair's Grainiac won Best of Class, Best of Category and Gold at the American Distilling Institute. Then, in October, Whisky Magazine named the company Craft Distillery of the Year and Innovator of the Year.
