Liberty Call San Diego County 4-Grain Whiskey
Liberty Call Distilling Co. // California, USA
This San Diego distillery’s 4-Grain Whiskey gets its name from the corn, rye, wheat, and barley that make up its mash bill in equal parts. Local beer yeast is also added as a flavoring agent. The whiskey is aged using the solera system of multiple, small barrels. Additionally, an in-barrel agitator is used to coax flavors from the wood. A small portion of the spirit is aged in honeycombed cherry and yellow birchwood barrels and then blended back with the solera-aged whiskey before bottling at 90 proof.

"There's a floral, yeasty, and almost hoppy spiciness to this nose, along with some aromas of milky, sweet coffee, and mint tea. Everything found in the complex nose explodes on the palate and carries into the long finish, which again, is bitter and floral like a fine American IPA. This is a must-try for craft beer fans."
