Much better than a number of other Corn Whiskies out there.

Notes: Produced by Philadelphia Distilling which produces a number of other products including Blue Coat Gin, Vieux Carre Absinthe,  XXX Shine Salted Caramel  Corn Whiskey, and Penn Vodka.

Appearance: Bright,clear a touch oily body.On swirling it forms a distinct edgeline then goes to legs followed by droplets on the sampling glass walls.

First Impression: Nice rich almost creamy/buttery smell of heirloom corn, unmistakable smell of a well distilled corn whiskey.

Taste: Nice oily entry with a sweetness that then goes to drying finish of creamed corn and spice.Pleasant medium length finish is almost cornbread like, corn and vanilla slight hint of citrus. Overall rather pleasant, spicy and interesting.

Drinks: No one has really come up with compelling recipes for White Whiskey yet )IMHO)

Bottle: Clear glass short cylindrical with jug ring on handle ( looks like a jug or beer growler). Black paper labels with a silver color for the lettering and designs. Rather hard to read because of the lack of contrast. Topped with a synthetic cork closure with wooden topper

Other: Works well with a Connecticut shade wrapper .

Final Thoughts: While not my personal favorite for a corn whiskey, it is very well done and a worthwhile product.
