This is an aged version of the Troy & Sons Platinum Small-Batch Moonshine. Its mash-bill is 100% Heirloom Crooked Creek Corn, which is a non-genetically modified corn produced continuously for 120 years on McEntire Farm in North Carolina. No age statement, but the whiskey is “mellowed” in charred oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

"There’s a hint of sweet, white corn on the nose, along with some deep vanilla from the oak. More sniffs reveal a bit of mild cherry. Texturally, this is a syrupy spirit with a fair amount of heat on the palate. Unfortunately the oak influence actually hides some of the pure corn flavor present on the un-aged spirit. I was really impressed with the expressiveness and terroir of the moonshine. While still tasty, this aged version seems superfluous. "
