Peggy Noe Stevens – 8.7

Nose: Warm caramel and coconut with a figgy center.  Soft grains with just the right, crisp Asian spice.  Mandarin and apricot.

Palate: Multi layered and builds on the palate. Enchanting pipe smoke that lingers.  Truffles and fennel, seasoned oak.

Finish: Flavors fold neatly in a harmonious blend of flavors.

Comments: This whiskey deserves a pause and is an attention getter. Enjoyable for any occasion.

Susan Reigler – 8.5

Nose: Wheat crackers and vanilla with some barely ripe peach. Alcohol kick after the initial aromas.

Palate: Vanilla, wheat berries, ripe apples and pears. This is balanced by  the flavor of cashews and spicy oak.  

Finish: Ends rather quickly, but there is a good balance of sweet and dry at the very end.

Comments: Not as sweet as many wheat whiskeys. Water brings out the apples. The longer it sits in the glass, the stronger the nutty note.
