Lyon New Make Corn Whiskey
Lyon // Maryland, USA
Distilled in Maryland, Lyon New Make Corn Whiskey is made in "ultra small batches using traditional pot stills." The spirit is briefly touched by oak. Although it imparts no flavor, it leaves behind the slightest hint of color, an unusual light topaz. It is bottled at 50% ABV.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"Corn dominates the nose, but it's corn with a unique and surprisingly woody edge. Let's toss in a little herbal epazote while we're at it. Corn again leads the way on the palate as wood diminishes and a sweetness emerges only to dominate the medium-long finish."
