  • Intro:

    This sweet corn bourbon is produced from corn grown on the distillery estate and bottled at 40% ABV. This should be interesting, as I don't drink a particular ton of corn whiskey, but I like the sound of it, so here goes. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, perfume forward. Lots of corn, some perfume, lavender. Hint of spice. Not super complex, but entirely present, especially if you prefer lighter, more floral things.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, but no heat. Sweet corn, pralines, caramel. Vanilla bean, light melon, lavender and pepper.

  • Finish:

    Short finish here as well, but lots of caramel, toffee and praline. Sweet and decadent, with a hint of melon like honey dew.

  • Overall:

    This is really interesting. It isn’t unseating any truly amazing corn whiskeys, but this is totally fine for what it is. Interesting from start to finish, especially on the nose, though it isn’t very good or great.

  • Score:

    5
