Brimstone Corn Whisky

Palate:Lightly creamy texture. Chocolate, mellow spice and corn take off together, laced with toastyness and subtle underlying dryness, freshly ground pepper and zesty lemon.
Finish:Toastyness, dryness, oak, toffee and fresh pepper.
Comments: It's all about counter-point, with different flavours balancing and enhancing each other. Adding water makes the palate fruitier and creamier.
Nose:Once you get past the smoky BBQ, there is lots of corn sweetness. Brown sugar, honey, rum soaked raisins. Some herbal notes lurk, sage and thyme
