Tasting Notes

After all this work, how does our young whiskey taste?

Dave P. has supplied some tasting notes.

Nose: Slightly floral, earthy, and grainy -- reminiscent of freshly distilled Tequila.

Taste: Surprisingly sweet, but not overly so. Initial taste is primarily front palate. As the taste develops, it moves to the sides of the tongue -- revealing the unaged grainy sourness. But again, not too sour. Finally, the corn and rye grain tastes develop.

Finish: Fairly long and dry with the grain being most evident.

Overall: The taste is not nearly as aggressive as expected, surprisingly mellow and sweet.

Steve B. adds: "I'll have another!"
