Our take on American Whiskey starts with American yellow corn and wheat as the secondary grain. This creates a delicate and refined bourbon with a smooth and mellow flavor. Aged in new, charred American oak no less than one year and blended with whiskeys up to two years, this is California’s Bourbon Whiskey. Drink it neat, or in a classic Whiskey Sour.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast - A Bourbon from wine country? Yes! This is one in a series of yearly small-batch releases celebrating “California Bourbon.” Made from corn, rye and cherry-smoked malted barley, look for a toasty brioche aroma and herbaceous accents. On the palate, it's dry and pleasantly light, suggesting cedar, tea, honey, baking spice and oak. A subtly smoky note emerges after the whiskey sits for a while. Consider mixing a boulevardier, with sweet vermouth and Campari. - Review of 1st batch
