Tirado Gold Corn Whiskey
Tirado // New York, USA
Tirado is the first distillery to produce whiskey in the Bronx borough of New York City since Prohibition! It is operated by physician Dr. Renée Hernandez, who wanted to use locally grown ingredients to reflect his pride of his home state. In this case, the whiskey is made with organic corn grown upstate.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"Tastes exactly like buckwheat pancakes with a flood of maple syrup poured over them, topped with stale cinnamon. Smoked sausage comes through too, ending in a bitter, medicinal finish that unfortunately lingers a bit too long. Subtle, this is not. The website copy suggests serving it in Cola."
