American Whiskey
90 Proof 45% ABV

About the Whiskey

This small batch expression from Distillery 291, creators of 291 Colorado Whiskey, is created in a pre-Prohibition style, distilled in a copper pot still. The whiskey undergoes a short aging process, for at least five months, in toasted American white oak barrels and is made from a mash bill of corn, malted rye, and malted barley mash.

Tasting Note

Nose: Perfumed sweet peach, a touch of gooseberry, dehydrated orange, pencil shavings, sweet grain leading into muscovado sugar and warming spice. Then some green leaves and a hint of tar.

Palate: Gorgeous mouthfeel, with Fisherman’s Friend cough sweets, then camp fire with icing sugar. There’s a creaminess that’s almost like crème brûleé, with sweet barbequed peaches, ginger warmth and more of that leathery tar.

Finish: Marmite on crumbly toast, with peach sweetness.

Comment: Please pour me another one ASAP.
