Silvery straw color. Aromas of parmesan, sweet plantains, meringue, lemon loaf, freshly tilled earth, sprouted grain, and marigold with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a hot, breezy vanilla sugar finish. A fiery whiskey with great acidity that will be fun in a punch.

Whiskeys are brown- everyone knows that, correct? Well, there are actually white whiskeys, a trend recently started by artisan distilleries in the USA. While many of the products are not aged in charred barrels,, which would given them their color (or not aged at all, making them nothing more than moonshine), there are a few examples that are aged in uncharred oak barrels. These white whiskeys have flavors of vanilla, sour cream, fig and custard, among other characteristics. They are of varying degrees of intensity, and the finest are of excellent quality and work beautifully in cocktails.
