  • Excerpt: I enjoy this whiskey. The soft fruity flavors and aromas mixed with the baking spices and light body and feel make it an easy spirit to drink neat or on the rocks and makes one hell of a cocktail.

  • Excerpt: It all wafts away on a razor-edged cloud of a finish. Smooth for a white, but I'd like more substance.

  • Excerpt: This isn't as slick like a corn whiskey, but there is a soft creamy sweetness like that of vanilla cream.

  • Excerpt: It helps that this has been cut way down to 80 proof, softening the spirit up further and going out with a smooth vanilla finish. One of the most enjoyable silver whiskeys I’ve ever had.

  • Intro:

    Unaged oat whiskey from High West in Park City, Utah.

  • Nose:

    Less sweet than the BT unaged mash. A little bit of cream, some astringency, maybe some mild spice. Overall, theres a lot less going on here than I expected there would be, but it also doesnt smell like paint thinner so I think thats a more favorable place to be.

  • Taste:

    Oddly bland. Its strange to feel this way for a spirit but I get only a small handful of things. Grain and syrupy sweet, mild acetone and some plastic.

  • Finish:

    Its short but not terribly offensive, theres just not a lot going on. Mild sweetness and then it wisps away.

  • Overall:

    Nothing too exciting. Not great, not terrible.

  • Score:

    4
