Spirits from Manatawny Still Works are produced by Max Pfeffer, a former beer brewer. This is their white whiskey -- merely "kissed" by an American oak barrel -- with a mashbill of malted barley, wheat, oats, and rye. It's distilled twice and bottled at 94 proof.

Tasting Notes

"The nose of this white whiskey tingles with the agricultural rawness of a young spirit. Though it's relatively high proof and lacks ageing, it's not too hot on the palate, with a mitigating sweetness and a long, grainy finish. Oats are an interesting addition to the mashbill, and the spice of rye is nicely balanced. It's a good white whiskey, but one wonders how it might be improved if that "kiss" of oak lasted a little longer. "
