Cedar Ridge Distilling
Style: Single Malt
Peggy Noe Stevens
Fresh rolls of hay and malted barley. Displays a yeasty essence and focused floral notes of hibiscus. Lightly caramelized wood sugar.
Surprise entrance of a peat note, smoky and enticing. Peanut shell and butter brickle with cinnamon and ginger. A spritz of citrus.
Spices lead with citrus and oak and slowly dwindle into the first smoke of the peat essence.
Nice show of earthy flavor presence, which elevates at the finish to flex its muscle.
Very light apple with some sweet malt and nuts emerging as it sits in the glass.
Milk chocolate-covered graham cracker with a little spike of cayenne pepper. The apple finally appears just before the finish begins.
The nuts from the nose perform an encore which fades into a whisp of light smoke.
A delicate balancing act between the light flavors, none of which outshines the others. Good example of a light-bodied malt whiskey.
