Dark Horse Long Shot White Whiskey
Dark Horse Distillery // Kansas, USA
Dark Horse Distillery opened in 2010 with Rider Vodka, Reunion Rye, Reserve Bourbon and of course Long Shot white whiskey. The Lenexa (Kansas City, KS) based company is family-owned and run in a 20,000 sq ft location that also doubles as an event space.
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.
"The whiskey itself comes in at 80 proof and is as clear as water. It has a very raw nasal character as you should expect. For a white whiskey it is very mild. The aroma has a faint resemblance of rising bread. And a slight floral character I’m going to chalk up to good Midwestern water."
