Immortal Spirits Early Whiskey
Immortal Spirits // Oregon, USA
Distilled from barley grown in the Rogue Valley of Oregon, and distilled and aged in Medford, Oregon, this whiskey is the first of many planned future whiskey releases from Immortal Spirits. Aged for two months in Oregon oak barrels, it is best to imagine this release as similar to en primeur Bordeaux wines. Essentially, this is an early preview of whiskey they plan to further age.

"The aroma is very simple with grain, caramel and alcohol notes. On the palate, this is a rough, unpleasant spirit. Caramel and grain notes are evident, but so is a bitter vegetal note that is often associated with missing a tail cut during distillation. Alcohol burn and an acrid, creosote note finish things off. The finish returns to the harsh vegetal character, tempered with a very light caramel flavor. This is an unpleasant whiskey and cannot be recommended. "
