The Emerald 1865
Ransom Spirits

Proof: 87.6
ABV: 43.8%
Style: Pot Still
State: OR
Price: $$$

Peggy Noe Stevens – 6.5

Nose: Corn husk, slightly medicinal. Lemon citrus with young wood.

Palate: Corn syrup and grainy accents.  Grits and almond combination with faint yellow apple peel.  Vegetal  and herbaceous.

Finish: A bit astringent and raw, which dissipates quickly.

Comments: Lacking complexity, so add a few drops of water to release the tightness.

Susan Reigler – 7.7 

Nose: Sweet oak and malt with a far amount of caraway and some caramel. 

Palate: Malty cereal, with some dark cherry preserves and a dusting of cocoa and brown sugar.  Herbal spice compliment sweet oak tannins. 

Finish: Sweetly spicy with the cocoa showing up even more than on the palate. Dry without being arid or peppery.

Comments: Notably smooth whiskey. No need to add water and you do not want to.
