Fearless Wheat Whiskey
Catskill Distilling Company
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.
