Deerhammer Whitewater Whiskey
Deerhammer // Colorado, USA
An unaged version of their American Single Malt, made of five different varieties of malted barley. Deerhammer Distilling is located in Buena Vista, CO and uses a direct-fire copper still for their distilling.
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.
"Rustic and earthy with a heavy barnyard essence on the bouquet. Heavy cereal grains initially with a sweet middle, almost like sweetened cocoa. Citrus zest overtakes in the mid-palate before a slight juniper essence and then back to cocoa. An all-over-the-place flavor journey with an overwhelming underlying tobacco flavor. "
