Adirondack 601 Bourbon
Adirondack Distilling Company // New York, USA
601 bourbon is a no-age-statement whiskey (the stated "aged less than 4 years" doesn't provide real information) from Utica, New York, made from a high-corn mashbill. In fact, it is 100% corn, locally sourced, making it close to a corn whiskey, aside from the new barrel aging (corn whisky can only age in USED barrels, if aged at all). It is one of the few bourbons to use a single-grain recipe. This product is released in batches so variations may occur.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Big, untamed oak and raw grain dominate the nose, with sweet caramel corn and a bit of BBQ smothered beneath. In the mouth it is aggressive and unbalanced, again dominated by oak and a rough corn sweetness with cinnamon spice and a medicinal astringency in the background. The finish is very brief, very dry, and again dominated by the oak. "
