A stunning glass, gentle yet exotic.
Original Straight Wheat Whiskey
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: The first impression is butter, then fresh baking, toasted crumpet followed by light red fruit (cherry) and allspice. Gentle, with a tricksy quality, lemon meringue lifted by a subtle spiciness. Very clean and well defined.
Palate: Gentle then a tingle of fresh planed oak. Reminiscent of melted rock candy with a hint of toffee and a menthol note. Very fine.
Finish: Long, spicy.
Comment: A stunning glass, gentle yet exotic.
Nose: Warm, welcoming, appetising. The bakery aromas of Sunday brunch.
Palate: Pancakes. Cornbread. Buttered corn. Peach cobbler. Pecan pie. Pints of vanilla ice cream with butterscotch sauce, garnished with sprigs of fresh mint.
Finish: A hint of soft, leafy, balancing dryness.
Comment: At an 'all you can eat' buffet in Chicago, a woman piling her plate said to me: 'isn't this sinful?'
