I thought I would post this because I had been curious about corn whiskeys. This is the first one I have tried (although I had some moonshine several years back).
I found an odd one while dusty hunting in DC the other day:
Stillbrook Straight Corn Whiskey BIBIt looks like it was bottled in 1977.
Distilled by American Distilling Co.
D.S.P. ILL. No. 2, Pekin, Illinois
Bottled by American Distilling Co.
D.S.P VA. No. 6, Petersburg, Virginia
Color: Pale Honey YellowI was pleasantly surprised. Very drinkable, and I'm looking forward to mixing it with a spicy Blenheim's Ginger Ale.
Nose: Sweet corn, honey, vanilla, some floral (honeysuckle?)
Palate: Bananas, cream, marshmallow, honey
American made a straight bourbon in the 1970s along with the corn whiskey. A quick Google search shows there's a 3yo "Stillbrook Old Style Whiskey," which is owned by McCormick Distilling Co.
