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 nose is boasting some serious spiciness which also shows on the mouth, flowing with masses of Christmas spices, rye bread, liquorice, and star anise. Of course, one needs to take into account this is unaged spirit, and it is surprisingly smooth as such!"
