Big Spring Spirits Silver Hare Wheat Whiskey
Big Spring Spirits // Pennsylvania, USA
Distilled in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, which has "Pennsylvania's Best Tasting Water" according to the Pennsylvania Rural Water Association Conference, this 100% wheat whiskey comes in at 85 proof. The distillery is located in a historic building that used to house a matchbook company and is currently working toward certification as the first LEED certified distillery in the United States.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"Light grain, cream biscuits and a freshly mowed yard all appear on the nose. The whiskey itself has a creamy body with a nice, lightly sweet mouthfeel. Grain is the predominant flavor, with background flavors of white pepper, anise, fennel, roasted pecan and chicory coffee. The finish is medium, leaving a bitter, but not unpleasant herbal flavor reminiscent of epazote on the tongue before a light grain note finishes things. "
