Teton Moonshine Blended American Whiskey
Grand Teton // Idaho, USA
The Grand Teton Distillery lies on the west foothills of the Teton mountain range. The area gets 500-800 inches of snow per year. They use the snow-melt to proof all of their spirits. This is their take on “White Dog” whiskey. This is distilled from corn and potatoes, though the bottle does not state in what proportions. As potatoes are used, this isn't technically a whiskey at all...
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 aroma of raw alcohol emanates from the glass, which is expected, fortunately this quickly blows off. What remains is a strong note of vanilla, toasted bananas, and slightly burnt sugar cookies. The palate is juicy with a quorum of the usual suspects, toasted cereal grains, vanilla, and a twinge of raw banana. The finish does have the beginnings of a malty taste but it is quickly whisked away."
