Review (2017)

  • Batch: N/A
  • Bottling Code: L515511518
  • Bottling Date: ~2016

Sweet, spicy, and dry on the nose with corn, oak, caramel, jalapeno, and rich vanilla. The palate is rich and sweet, with some nice minerality and lots of corn, light floral rye, celery seed, maple, and oaky spices. The finish is sweet, with earthiness, chanterelles, caramel, and a bit more celery spice and minerality.  It’s simple, but it’s really easy to drink. A great casual whisky.

Score: 82/100

Value: 68/100 (based on $40)
