Catskill Distilling Company

Proof: 85

Peggy Noe Stevens – 8.6

Nose: Warm vanilla and juicy red apple. Brown sugar develops into caramel. Nutmeg and cherry, freshly baked gingerbread.

Palate: Good balance of spice and oak. Brown sugar and banana nut bread. Dark fruit. 

Finish: Savory finish with oak lingering. Long, sweet and dry finish that deserves applause.

Comment: Admirable complexity that warrants your sippin whiskey to keep for yourself.  Beautiful color and cadence of flavors.

Susan Reigler – 7.8 

Nose: A light nose, with elements of buttered popcorn and a little vanilla icing, as well as whiffs of candied fruit. 

Palate: Roasted corn and some vanilla wafer. Faint suggestions of fruit and perhaps some nuts. But cereal flavors dominate the glass. 

Finish: Peppery with oak dryness. The fruit struggles to emerge, but can never quite manage to do so. 

Comment: Beautiful burnished bronze color, which turns out to be the outstanding feature of this whiskey.
