IMG_4505Just a head’s up. After this review, we’re taking a break from un-aged whisk(e)y for a while. A long while. It tends to be the palate equivalent of seeing the sausage being made and I’m kind of tired of paying for that.

Griping done.

You’ve seen the previous article on Buffalo Trace bourbon.  This is an un-aged expression of one of the blends that goes into the casks.  The difference is pretty stark – the more we try new makes the more I’m thankful that coopering is a thing. The wood adds so much to the taste of whiskey that there’s a reason they don’t call new make or white dog whiskey. It just isn’t. It’s moonshine.
