    Hellbender Corn Whiskey

    This one took me a bit by surprise. Apparently distilled in what appears to be a little hole in the wall right in Decatur by Independent Distilling Company. News to me although it is noted on SKU's site as a product they are working on. Apparently they are finished! Also seem to be making a rum or two as well.

    Anybody tried it? I confess unaged corn whiskey hasn't really been my thing so I passed on a bottle.

    Well, now that was during a yesterdays Wednesday Tasting so it is possible I might not remember...

    But I can find out easily enough.

    Fairly spendy! $32.99 at the place I saw it. Apparently it is pretty new. But hey, its a "craft" whiskey!

    I haven't seen it in the stores, but I'm trying to get them to come and speak at the kickoff event for my little Kirkwood Whiskey Society. We're literally right down College Ave from them.

    Re: Hellbender Corn Whiskey

    I chatted with one of the guys from Independent the other day and then stopped by to check out their setup in Decatur. Met Michael Anderson, seems like a great and determined guy. Happy to say that they are planning on coming by my inaugural event! I got to taste the product, actually seemed quite nice for an unaged corn whiskey, but then to be honest I really don't have a lot of experience with stuff that hasn't been in wood for a while.
