  • Intro:

    This is produced at the Door County Distillery in Door County, Wisconsin. A nice, small local distilling operation. A 100% Barley spirit, bottled at 80 proof. They give little information about their spirit so I'm just going to dive in. This isn't bourbon whiskey, just an American made single malt.

  • Nose:

    Sugar, molasses and a huge floral punch

  • Taste:

    Like shoving your face in a bouquet, the sweetness almost totally vanishes in lieu of a huge floral flavor.

  • Finish:

    Sugary sweetness shows up a little bit, with a little vanilla.

  • Overall:

    Not bad, not sure its worth the $20/350ml price but I'm always willing to give something local a shot every now and again; I'm not overly disappointed. I'm giving this a Rank 4. It's not amazingly complex, or delicious. It's just kind of there. A thin, sweet floral dram with no real complexity.
