ABV: 40%

Matured in ex-bourbon and ex sherry casks

Appearance: Radiant golden straw, as its nickname would befit.

Nose: Bright green apple, honeydew and sauvignon blanc grapes with the slightest ethanol burn peeking through.

Palate: Watermelon jolly rancher, raspberries and a light, refreshing bit of cucumber. Very pleasant medium length finish, low viscosity, firm but not abrasive oak tannin. The watermelon note in particular sticks around.

Final Thoughts: A very pleasant, easy drinking dram. It has an a distinctly light and “summer-y” character, in a good way. Not necessarily what I would want on a cold night in November, but something more suited to a backyard barbecue. At around $40, I’d call it a value whisky that would be right at home in a gussied up classic cocktail or whisky highball.

Out of stock
