Orange County Distillery Bourbon
Orange County Distillery // New York, USA
OCD is a tiny operation in Orange County, New York, started by two businessmen in their off-season. All the grain is grown on-site at the distillery. Batch 9 bourbon was made from grains grown in fields 37, 38, and 47 on the property and then aged 7 months in small oak barrels.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.

"Sweet roasted corn is the first aroma out of the glass, followed by a healthy dousing of vanilla. The wood is there, but has that classic raw sawdust note that's typicall of small-barrel aging. The palate reveals more corn and vanilla with a hint of the oak (much better-integrated than on the nose!). The finish is short and sweet. This is clearly a young distillery and has a ways to go, but their bourbon has good bones. Hopefully in time, they will be able to age their whiskey in larger barrels for longer periods of time. Good things ahead for them"
