Tasting Notes

"Though the name brings to mind rough frontier whiskey, Deadwood bourbon is actually sweet and smooth. It's light on the palate with flavors of caramel, maple, and honey, ending with a subtle, gentle finish. It's a straightforward whiskey: light, approachable, and value priced. It's not going to knock anyone's socks off, but it's well-suited perhaps to a night of playing cards."
