Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, American Single Malt Whiskey with an intense birth; while a bold life leads to a long & fiery death.
 
Scott
Scott,
pour Jim Beam through a cat box, dump a bottle of pickle juice and some black pepper and it would taste better than this
 
Bobby
Bobby,
Just... No. First impression was of drinking “wet”. It’s like drinking whiskey made from Everglades water with hints of spoiled Halloween candy
 
David
David,
This is too high test, and sharp for me to drink neat. I make a killer cocktail with it though. Simple syrup, fresh lemon juice and blackberries wildly shaken. Flavor still cuts through. Also, i think it was much pricier at the distillery.
 
David
David,
This runs 48%. This was a bit too sharp for me. I used it for very swanky bourbon cocktails instead of straight and they were delicious. Strong flavor.
 
Alexandro
Alexandro,
Worst whiskey I've had, tastes like hay and metal
 
Sunnylee
Sunnylee,
Very smoky, but smooth.
 
Mark
Mark,
Very interesting. Smoke is obviously different than what you may expect. But I think good In a different way... worth a taste
 
Alex
Alex,
This is really interesting. Wood smoke is definitely the dominant flavor. I disagree with all the reviews saying it’s awful - it’s definitely not bad. It’s a bit different though. If you like the flavor of wood smoke (not peat, which this definitely is not), you’ll probably like this.
 
Liam
Liam,
I really did not like this at all. At the risk of being crass... It had forward notes of kicked up dirt road gravel with after hints of what used to be caramel. The flavor...was like something salty and metallic was drug through that gravel road, followed by an aftertaste of more gravel and something I'm embarrassed to mention. In the immortal words of Mr. Horse, "No Sir, I don't like it."
 
Dominic
Dominic,
This is the first whiskey I can say that I would reject, if somebody purchased it for me. It offends just about every sense. The smell is overwhelming, not just of smoke, but of the dirt used to put out a campfire--coupled with nail polish remover. The taste is harsh, and closely resembles the smell--like licking the inside of an old man's mouth after 3 days of pipe smoking in front of a peat-fire. Hard pass.
 
Lee
Lee,
From the nose through the finish it is all smoke. This is the first non-Scotland single malts I tried. This Virginia distillery malts barley on a floor similar to a Scotch distillery but burns apple, cherry and oak to fire the still and those smoky, versus peaty flavors overpower this 96 proof whisky.
 
Gary
Gary,
Quite possibly the worst whiskey I have tasted. Pungent nose leads to a metallic taste, as if it were distilled in the barrel of a used rifle. The black liquorice aftertaste summed up this awful tasting experience.
 
Jeffry
Jeffry,
Pungent nose. Flavor was Smokey and had a chemically/metallic taste to it that was somewhat unpleasant. No thanks
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Too hot for the smokiness.
 
Terri
Terri,
very earthy, grassy. Spicy, smoky, Fresh cut grass meets forest fire. Well built whiskey but flavor profile is not for everyone.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Love the smoke.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Not a fan at all. Very pungent nose. Metallic/smoky flavor. Spiral is definitely accurate, all the way to the liquorice finish. Might be
 
Tina
Tina,
Loved the smoky smell and taste!
 
Ross
Ross,
This was my 3rd choice in the 3 samples. Was lacking a thing or two. Spicy sums it up. Not my favorite.
 
Brian
Brian,
Smelled of earth and soil and had a smoky twinge to it. Not for me.
 
Mike
Mike,
A disappointment, given how much I enjoy their rye. Unbalanced, and flavors of damp grass rather than dry smoke. Appreciate the spice, but not going to be adding this one to the bar.
 
david
david,
All I could taste was a chemically paint flavor. Did not enjoy.
 
Greg
Greg,
Disappointing drink. Maybe the combination of cherry and smoke turns to leather, but I tend to think cherry pipe tobacco. So here the flavor spiral doesn’t work for me. Leather up front and in the nose. Smoke and oak after stir up oil for the umami. Just not impressed.
 
Matt
Matt,
Smooth. A definite winner best or on the rocks.
 
Colleen
Colleen,
The smoke surprised me but finished well.
 
Kathryn
Kathryn,
Well-rounded, but a bit overly Smokey.
 
Brent
Brent,
A Little medicine-y.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
As the first non-scotch single malt I’ve tasted I have to say it was quite good. I could clearly taste the flavors. I would recommend this to anyone looking to branch out.
 
Uriel
Uriel,
A whiskey with a unique flavor from the apple wood. Took me some getting used to, and worth doing, but not your every day drink. Great with a little water. There's a version sealed with blue wax that's even better, aged a bit longer in port casks.
 
Gary
Gary,
Amazing. Didn't think I'd like it, but they use floor-malting with apple and cherry wood smoking. Wasmund was trained at Bowmore on Islay. Apparently he learned his trade well.
 
Britton
Britton,
I love it. It's become a staple.
 
William
William,
Innovative and delicious, great new addition to the cabinet and for sipping around the fireplace.
 
Garry
Garry,
The spiciest, most unique Rye I've met. Smooth for its very young age, in a class of its own.
 
Paul
Paul,
Young. Funky smokey flavor. Almost mesquite. Interesting to try given the price, but also painless to miss.
 
William
William,
A good young whiskey. It has some nice subtleties to the flavor. It smells like it's going to be very hot, but turns out much smoother than expected. Good for mixing, but I could enjoy it straight in a pinch.
 
C
C,
This is a young whiskey with potential. The flavors are interesting and have a character all its own. I will follow them in the future and look towards their products as they mature as distillers!
 
Jim
Jim,
This is possibly the worst Whisky I've ever tasted. Certainly the least subtle. It's flavour is a combination of bitter wood and some sickly fruit taste - like over-flavoured cough medicine or mouthwash
