High West Silver Whiskey Western Oat
High West // Utah, USA
This barely aged (five minutes is barely aged) whiskey is comprised of a mash bill of 85% oats and 15% malted barley. They use their used rye barrels in the brief aging process. The oats are sourced from Alberta, Canada and the whiskey is non chill-filtered. There will be a more aged version of this whiskey when the product has aged to their liking.
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.

"Though this is clear, it does not taste like vodka (aka nothing in a glass). This tastes like something. In this case, it is smells and tastes like the product that is mostly made from...oats. If you've had an oat beer, the aroma will be familiar. There are also faint notes of banana. This isn't as slick like a corn whiskey, but there is a soft creamy sweetness like that of vanilla cream."
