WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"The high proof of Snowfall is immediately evident on the nose, but its assertive heat is backed by notes of malty sweetness. Those expectations follow through to the palate, which has an abundance of spice that cools pleasantly as it evaporates and lingers with a hint of menthol. It's an impressively enjoyable spirit for such a high proof."
