Named for the water it uses from the Seven Devils mountain range, this is Idaho's "first bourbon" though that statement may be a bit misleading as it is distilled in Kentucky, but bottled in Idaho. Koenig Distillery and Winery also has wine, brandy, and vodka to their name but this is their initiation into the whiskey world.

Tasting Notes

"There is an immediate astringency that catches the nose off guard, but that does give way to maple, citrus zest, and chocolate. The initial flavor is admittedly a bit harsh. Herbal notes come through with a dab of mint and sage; nuttiness coupled with vanilla and orange make up the body with a hint of char and dark cocoa on the finish."
