  • Excerpt: The taste is bold and spicy with cayenne, chili peppers, cinnamon, and clove balanced by hints of vanilla, dark chocolate, and nuts that come out as the spices start to fade. The finish is dry and spicy with cayenne, honey, and dark chocolate notes. Very nice.

  • Excerpt: The finish confirms the youth of the whiskey as it flames in a long, hot wind-up. Some very interesting components here, waiting for better integration.

  • Excerpt: This all develops more seamlessly and interestingly than you’d think — and all at the end. Give this whiskey ample time in the glass — Garrison recommends a cube of ice — and you’ll see the popcorn settle down and the other components really begin to build up.

  • Excerpt: The whiskey itself is a bit oaky, showing some vanilla and caramel, finishing long and slightly hot. I'd love to see a longer-aged version of this whiskey.

  • Excerpt: This bourbon really wants to be Knob Creek Single Barrel. It has the cinnamon red hot nose and finish to it in spades. But it has extreme youth and lower proof working against it.

  • Intro:

    This is a craft product being released from Garrison Brothers in Texas. It is made from #1 Panhandle White Corn and aged for 3 years.

  • Nose:

    Craft funk, wet cardboard, really musty. Theres some maple, some sweet vanilla and some mossy notes. Overall, its pretty rank.

  • Taste:

    Thin and sickly sweet. Its musty, funky, young and loaded with new make notes. Astringent and loaded with those young wet cardboard craft notes.

  • Finish:

    Short with some heat. The finish is pretty gross, still loaded with musty new make notes.

  • Overall:

    I have to be transparent here - this bottle was a gift from a friend. It was a great act of generosity and I'm happy I got to try it and review it. But good lord, this is garbage in every sense of the word. I regret consuming as much of this bottle as I did in the hopes I would find some redeeming quality.
