Peggy Noe Stevens – 7.6 

Nose: Bouquet of citrus and lavender. Sweetness of cane sugar and honey. Grits and granola that are airy and gentle.  

Palate: Easy going and nice harmony of subtle flavors. Ginger and white grapes with honey and citrus. Celery seed and faint mint and nutmeg. Almond butter.

Finish: Subtle complexity and bone dry on the finish in a very congenial way.

Comment: Nice tension of light flavors that blend. Splash of ginger ale would be appropriate with this whiskey.

Susan Reigler – 7.3

Nose: There’s corn and malt and some very subtle, sweet wood smoke throughout. 

Palate: Absolutely dominated by corn and malt with some underlying sugar. 

Finish: Dry and malty. Lingers for a bit and then simply vanishes. 

Comment: A devotee of light-bodied, blended Scotch will probably find this quite pleasant. But if you are looking for complexity, perhaps sip elsewhere.
