Nose
Plenty of oily corn and toasty oak aromas greet the nose. Young and a little spirity at the edges with developing sweetish herbal rye. Late hints of orange and vanilla.
Palate
Again quite young, but not showing the slight spiritiness of the nose with oily corn and herbal rye. Relatively straightforward but pleasantly deep with late toasted vanilla and toffee.
Finish
Long with a touch of biting spices and lingering sweet, herbal rye and citrus. Lovely sweet corn after-taste.
Comment
A pleasant, easy-going whiskey.

Nose
Lots of fresh oak, leading to cardboard, vanilla, and some tobacco. A hint of soy sauce too.
Palate
A palate of oaky and corny goodness which is rounded and direct. Certainly one I would prefer to have mixed into a cocktail.
Finish
Sweet and well rounded, this is a good example of a youngish American whiskey.
Comment
A snapshot of development, maybe? This could become something quite incredible with a bit more time.
