    This ever-evolving whisk(e)y journey leads me to the state of Washington and this bottle made with organic wheat sourced from & harvested by local farmers. Bainbridge Distillers is mainly known for its Yama Mizunara Cask Whiskey but looks like the Battle Point offering has a few accolades as well. Quick side tangent: the term organic is often met with a roll of the eyes as a marketing gimmick but unlike the phrase ‘all natural’ that anyone can use & means nada, the use of ‘organic’ on any labeling requires 3rd party certification & takes both time & effort to achieve. In the context of whisky, organic refers strictly to the agriculture of the raw ingredients. A farmer consciously choosing to grow his/her grains without synthetic fertilizers/pesticides/herbicides and a distillery choosing to purchase grains from that farmer. As a consumer, this type of agriculture & whisky production is interesting to me so I’m aiming for opportunities to complete the loop and spend some dollars to buy products from the distilleries who support these farmers. Win, win, win as the saying goes. Back to the bottle: there’s no denying the youth in this offering and it’s apparent on both the nose & palate, although not particularly off-putting. Honey, maple, cereal notes, and a hint of fresh cut lumber from the old sawmill on the nose, with the same notes featuring more prominently on the palate. Clean and crisp. Highly drinkable. Rating: the Distiller score of low/mid 80s is probably spot on. A solid 3.5 stars rounded up since I’m rooting for the success of this distillery. Rooting for them to continue to hone their craft. Rooting for their longevity so one day we might see 10,12,15 year offerings. Cheers everyone.
