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), must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time.
"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."
