Yearling is the first aged whisky produced at West Virginia's Smooth Ambler distillery. Master Distiller John Little distills it twice in pot stills, with a mashbill of 60% corn, 20% wheat, and 20% malted barley. It's aged in 5-15 gallon casks. This review is for the first release of this product - a second one with a different mashbill aged in larger barrels is also set for release. Also, pricing is for a 375ml bottle.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky shows lots of potential in its youth. Tastes very much like a slice of homemade grain bread with notes of honey, candied fruits and sweet spices. The telltale sawdust/sandalwood facet of young whiskies is there, but it's edged almost out of the way to let its better attributes shine."
