Tasting Notes

"Like the Oregon hillsides, there is a distinctive "green" and grassy taste to this whiskey. A good deal of charcoal and earthiness surround a hint of sweetness and acidity. Spices emerge after a couple of sips, with allspice and sarsaparilla flavors reminiscent of root beer. A solid foundation is there, but it tastes as though the whiskeys needed more time to get to know each other in barrel before release into the real world. "
