White River Friday Night Redeye Corn Whiskey
White River Distillery // Arkansas, USA
White River Distilling is based in Gassville, Arkansas and was co-founded by Brian Fulker and Tyler Teeple. This whiskey is a blend of corn, barley, and sugar (the latter ingredient making this not technically a whiskey). They ferment the mash for seven to ten days, then distill the product twice in a reflux still.
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.
"Remember when you were a kid and you’d sneak a finger-full of icing off the cake? No? Well a nip of this will certainly bring you right back. There’s a heavy aroma of vanilla icing and refined sugar. The whiskey has a sleek texture but you’ll find this soon evaporates inside the heat of your mouth. The flavors remain hedonistic but a little less artificial than the nose. Vanilla bean, nearly ripe banana, and a recurrence of that oh so sweet icing. Build a cocktail around this, because no matter how much we love it, icing needs cake under it."
