The Official State Spirit of Alabama is Whiskey with a gentle touch of apple.

Clyde May was a WWII war hero and a bit of a local legend. But when he got home after the war, he made his living as a moonshiner in the back-woods of Alabama. He produced high quality Spirits and actually aged his Moonshine into Whiskey when other illegal operators were selling it right out of the still. He got caught and served eight months in federal prison, but as soon as he got out he built a new still and started over again. In 2001, Clyde’s son recreated the magic of that first aged Moonshine and built Clyde May’s Whiskey — legally this time — and their signature Bourbon is now the Official State Spirit of Alabama.

If you're wondering what the deal is with "Alabama Style Whiskey", we'll let you know. The secret is that the Spirit is finished with a little bit of apple juice for a touch of light fruitiness ― none of that artificial flavor, mind you. Otherwise, it's a proper Bourbon that spends 4 years in oak barrels, before being bottled at 85 proof. It's a pleasant, approachable, and easy drinker, this one is. It performs beautifully in cocktails as well!

Deep Bronze

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose has caramel, butterscotch, and dried orchard fruit aromas. There's a light green apple note as well.

A pleasant dark-sugar and fruity sweetness is on the palate. Medium-bodied, there's spice in the form of black pepper and anise notes, as well as some toasted oak and hints of chocolate.

It finishes smooth with charred oak and cinnamon notes. 
Ratings & Reviews
I enjoyed this whiskey with its light fruity flavor and sweetness.
Super short finish and not a ton of flavor. Fine as a mixer.
Surprisingly smooth, extremely sweet. The finish is short and a bit of a letdown, but for the price, it's really hard to beat.
