    Dead guy whisky

    I did have a Rogue Dead guy Whiskey
    at Stockholm beer and whisky festival yesterday witch due to the label was aged only 1 month. Not that bad at all I most say, a bit sticky nose but very sweet and mellow taste.

    I just acquired a bottle yesterday, and I thought it was pretty good. Very smooth, a bit sweet. Could have used some more barrel aging. If they lowered the price some ( I paid $40) I think it would well worth it.

    That's the problem for me too. I'd like to try some but I haven't heard enough about the juice to justify dropping $40 on a bottle.

    Well, if I want to drink Tequila it is an option. If I want Whiskey, I'll pass on the Dead Guy.

    I have a bottle at home. I bought it on a whim. Kind of wish I didn't, though. It is okay, but there is something rather unpleasant about it. I can't really figure it out. Maybe it is a lack of oak as mentioned previously.

    The unpleasantness you mention, lack of oak, comes across like a Tequila to me. It is aged about as long as a Reposado Tequila.

    I really like Tequila though, especially blancos. There is some sort of floral or fruity type note that is just too excessive, but I think that is only because there really isn't anything else to the whiskey. Does anyone know what is actually distilled? (As in, is it just the grain, or is it the whole recipe, hops and all?)

    I like Reposados. The Cabo Wabo Reposado being one of my faves.
