Tasting Notes

"It takes its time opening up, but once it does, the whiskey shows complimentary layers of sweet, smoke and spice. Sweet corn continues on the palate with a dollop of maple syrup. There is a slickness that stays with you and the whiskey has a spicy kick to the finish. They are not re-writing the book on bourbon; if tasting this blind, you might be surprised to find this is made in Colorado and not Kentucky."
