i have been sipping on a very smooth whisky, that i got from a board member this week.
i am not a big likker drinker, but this has such a sweet, smooth taste i find my self drinking it straight, i think i need to pour this over a ice cube an relax a bit.
this distiller should take a bow, and thanks again.

You should be able to figure it from a few comments on the board lately :wink:

Well it takes one to know one. I have been enjoying a nice smooth white dawg. It has loads of corn flavor that is layered with a nice sour mash addition. I would love to have some of this that has spent a couple of years in bed with white oak or other type of aging wood.
Glad that you liked my sample. It is close to the dregs of the jug. :roflmao: I have the last half pint put up for quality control. I liked this one so well that I have give none away to a non-distiller. Sour mashed rye ran with a muscadine melomel that my wife did not like. It has been oaked for over 3 years... This vintage is my reason to caution folks that they should take regular notes.

i have never had a rye before. this had just enough up front bite to know that it was whisky, but not corn.... like i said smooth enough to sip straight out of the flask with no heat on the toung to speak of. pretty good warming affect in the belly i would guess close to 90 proof. it had a mild after taste to it. my first thought was maple, then vanilla...it keeps me guessing because it is very mellow an deep the flavor hangs around for a couple of moments. small sips can't do justice.....this needs an ice cube an a quiet moment to think. i don't drink to much whisky, but i could drink this regular like if it was available.
it has been a while sense i put anything on oak, i do need to fill my barrels.
