Crown Valley Distilling produces this whiskey. 90 proof - mash bill? Malted barley I assume and ?
Their unaged is "the spirit is made from a blend of rye and barley,"...so I assume the same.
My 1st impression is the taste of licorice and bananna.....odd pairing but there it is.
It will take some time to get a handle on. Water seems to bring a cocoa note out.
The bottle states - "nose heavy vanilla scent with cinnamon and mint....taste is floral with
hints of vanilla ad cinnamon followed by a smooth finish of light smoke, coconut, bread, butterscotch."
Another review comes up with a different taste impression:
"Heavy cinnamon, nutmeg, I mean heavy with a chewy rye bread, and almost dark cocoa and almond like flavor to it.
Oak is a minor player in this game but the flavor of the whiskey is big, bold, and quite delightful."
I agree oak is not a big flavor contributor in this young whiskey.
