Excerpt: Corner Creek is complex and challenging, but it’s quite drinkable. In fact, it can generate quite the debate over the importance of “smoothness” in bourbon. That is, I have to say, the last term I’d use to describe this intriguing bottle.

Mmmm, craft whiskey.
Very sweet, lots of vanilla and cream. Some mild cinnamon and pepper.
It has a thin mouth feel but a pretty impressive palate for craft whiskey. Its mildly astringent but well balanced with lots of vanilla and cream sweetness. Starting to strike me as a dessert bourbon.
Short but nice and spicy. I like it more than I expected.
I don't know a whole lot about Corner Creek and I decided not to look into it too much before I tried this. Overall, I was pretty impressed given that it's a pretty low proof dram. I can totally see myself enjoying this while eating some pralines or a bowl of ice cream after dinner. Light, delicious and very gentle on the palate. Not a bad dram for the money.
