    mopgcw, when you say "weird and interesting" what does that translate to in terms of tastes? Can you break it down for us?

    The Quinoa whiskey, which is very young and aged in small barrels, tastes very much like quinoa, which if you haven't had it before is quite distinctive and different. Very nutty but otherwise hard to describe unless you have had quinoa before at which point no description is really necessary!

    The Centennial IPA whiskey I have came from the distillery in Nashville. Not sure how available it is in Georgia, if at all.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I have eaten quinoa. However I'm not quite sure how I would like that taste in whiskey form. Maybe some day I'll drop the dough or just go to Nashville for the tour and taste.

    it is a very light drink, smooth; a touch of fire at the end, but you have to savor it a bit to pull the fire out. quite nutty, with a bit of mouth feel; i did get a bit of the caramel on occasion but no chocolate i could get. so light it is almost not there. very subtle, i want to say thin, and odd. if you have a strong cigar, it gets lost completely. i like it, but not a favorite go to libation.

    the rasputin is too alcoholly for me; almost chemical. not a fan.

    great that they are working on this stuff.
