This line extension of Pendleton Whisky from Oregon's Hood River Distillers includes a portion of whisky aged for over six years in American brandy barrels. Once the whiskies are combined, they are blended with glacier fed spring water from Oregon's highest mountain before bottling. Available in select markets beginning September 2015.

Tasting Notes

"The nose features notes of fruit leather, cinnamon, baking spices, and a bit of an alcohol punch. On the palate, this is a surprisingly spicy whisky, with black pepper and cinnamon right at the front before nice oak, roasted almond, and banana bread flavors appear. The finish is quick and peppery, with a bit too much alcohol burn and a slight undertone of toasted hazelnut. At 90 proof, Pendleton Midnight stands up well to being the centerpiece of whisky-centric cocktails but isn't quite balanced enough to recommend on its own. "
