Irwindale, Calif., distiller Jim Busuttil can't call his newest concoction "Scotch"--that's reserved for spirits that hail from Scotland. But is there a dram-sipping purist who can get his tongue around "southern California single malt"? Aged only two years (most malts age at least eight), Busuttil's Peregrine Rock label appears as single malts have become the fastest-expanding category in the booze business. Connoisseurs say, however, that the raw product shows promise. "I think it's ready to go," says the enterprising Busuttil (who also makes an agave liquor that he can't officially call tequila). To make sure, he'll let his malt age another year before releasing it nationally.
