  • Intro:

    A blend of 5 whiskeys, this release from New York State's King's County Distillery features whiskey from 2 to 4 years old, from a variety of cask types and mashbills.

  • Nose:

    Intensely sweet, buttery and loaded with notes like fresh popped popcorn, caramel and honey. It's powerfully malt forward, and signs of youth are apparent left and right.

  • Taste:

    On the palate, there's a richness and oily viscosity, but overripe oranges, graininess, musty wood and cardboard are intensely perceptible. No heat, there's a pleasant sweetness, but the lack of aging is once again apparent.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, a blend of caramel, sweet corn, wet paper and maltiness continue.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is an improvement on other Kings County releases I've had, but it's clear that while great progress is being made, more age is definitely future releases can hopefully harness.

  • Score:

    4
