Big Spring Spirits Silver Lion White Corn Whiskey
Big Spring Spirits // Pennsylvania, USA
This white whiskey is part of Big Spring's line of unaged whiskeys; the Silver Lion is made from 100% corn. The "Big Spring" is named after the nearby spring in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, which provides water for the distillery's spirits.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"With a 100% corn mashbill, Big Spring's Silver Lion falls on the sweeter side of white whiskeys. The aroma is light with a hint of cereal; on the palate, the flavor is soft and straightforward with a taste of sweet corn and very little bite. It's less spicy than many other white whiskeys, and very clean. While it doesn't have the complexity that comes with barrel ageing, it's an approachable and reasonably priced spirit in the niche of unaged whiskeys."
