Unlike Stillhouse's original offering - an unaged moonshine whiskey, this bottling, er, canning, is aged briefly and then rested on coffee beans. The bottle bears a litany of labeling violations - for instance, Bourbon can't be flavored in any way, and the can doesn't bear a designation of finished whiskey. Is this America's Finest? Let's dig in.
Young, full of ethanol. Extremely spirit forward, with notes of roasted coffee, cocoa, confectioners sugar and young, malty, fresh grass.
Thin on the palate but notably hot despite the low proof. This drinks fiery and sweet, malty and cloyingly young and grassy, with touches of bitter coffee here and there.
Short finish - thankfully - and packed with youth, stale coffee notes and lactic, youthful funk.
The concept is exceedingly cool, but the execution is nothing short of a flop. Young, malty, the coffee used is clearly not best in class, and it shows. The only saving grace is a short finish, which ends the unpleasant experience you're forced to endure with each sip.
