Slipknot No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey
Blended American Whiskey — Iowa, USATasted January 30, 2021This is not what I expected having had the reg batch Iowa 9 which I really liked. Nose- subtle, sweet, smoke Taste - smoke hits you hard, followed by heavy cloves and black cherry. Faint all spice and light oily feel Finish - smooth, low proof so no burn at all. I’m getting a cherry Dr Pepper on the finish. Overall it’s a bit over smoked for me. Would have liked to see this at a higher proof. I like the small batch better to be honest.
