*Whisky Advocates Top 20 - 2021 (#19)*

Made at Green River Distilling Co. in Owensboro, Kentucky, this shows maturity far beyond its 2 to 4 years in the barrel, with a winning combination of proof and price. Root beer spice, candied pineapple, wet walnuts, clementine, and Christmas cookies on the nose. A velvety texture on the palate brings butter pecan ice cream, cinnamon toast, maple syrup, and vanilla custard. There is tremendous length on the finish, with a cola-like syrupy sweetness throughout. As debuts go, this one impresses.

Appearance: A darker shade of copper, bordering on brown with orange highlights. In the glass, there were several long legs along the side.

Nose: Brown sugar and molasses dominate with oak. Given the proof, was expecting more heat, but the whiskey’s nose was remarkably balanced and the flavour was delightful.

Palate: The whiskey tastes like it smells. The terms sugar and spice come immediately to mind. Molasses and some rye spice for sure, with a medium body and lingering finish. It took a few tastes, but there was another element in the background. Towards the end of the taste, there’s a subtle presence of candied pecan.
