American Blended Whiskey
Style: Blended American Whiskey
Peggy Noe Stevens
Soft pear and yellow apple with simple syrup and ginger. Enhanced with a grassy frame and subtle oak and floral notes.
Buttery texture. The ginger becomes pronounced, then soft white pepper and apple. Chips of oak surround a sweet array of light white sugar.
Elegant and approachable. Wood sugar and ginger reveal themselves again.
A truly relaxing sip that does not overpower, but actually invites you in.
Merest suggestion of apples or pears with some light brown sugar and vanilla frosting.
Initially sweet with fruit, then a herbal note of tobacco, like a new, unlit cigar. This becomes light oak.
Very quickly fades to oak and light pepper, which is the note that lasts the longest until that too fades into a lingering warmth.
Simple sip. While lacking complexity, it certainly doesn’t have any flaws. Quite pleasing for fans of drier whiskey.
