Kentucky Whiskey by a mad scientists trained in Islay.
 
Innovation comes from people who dare to take a different path, learn from the best and use their knowledge to shake it up, as our queen, Mrs. Taylor, likes to say. Darek Bell, dapper artisanal distiller from Kentucky, earned his chops at the Bruichladdich Distilling Academy in Islay, Scotland and his holy mission is to create Whiskey that’s better and different. He opened shop in 2009 with his childhood pal Andrew Webber and started handcrafting small-batch, ultra-premium hooch that won a ton of awards since then.
 
Corsair’s Wildfire is the distillery’s first grain-to-grass Whiskey. Their barley was grown, malted and smoked at the Bell’s Bend farm in Tennessee. And when it was smoked, hickory wood was used, which gives the grain (and Whiskey) the unique and smooth BBQ character with notes of smoke, caramel and butterscotch. This multiple-award cowboy brings the atmosphere of summer and socializing in the backyard to your home bar, and it’s both a fine sipper, or a delicious component in a cocktail. Did anyone say smoky Old Fashioned?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Corsair Wildfire and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

Corner
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.

Ratings & Reviews
Aaron
Aaron,
One of their best. Brought home a bottle from Tennessee that last time I was there and it disappeared a little too quickly. The proof combines with the sweet smoke so perfectly. Wildfire is an apt name.

Well balanced sweet and spicy, enjoyable on the rocks.

Joshua,
The reviews I saw of this online all had dismissive "it's like drinking BBQ!" putdowns and you know what - they can go jump in a pool. This is like a cross between an islay and an bourbon, and that's fantastic. The smoke and sweet is well balanced and a great combination. It's also a unique whiskey with a nontraditional wood and it's an innovation that works.

Noah,
I had read that this was too smoky... almost like drinking barbecue. I was a bit worried by that review but I love smoky so I went with it. Glad I did this is delicious. Lots of sweet caramel notes, it’s definitely smoky. But I’d be happy with it even smokier. Perhaps there are some inconsistencies in batches going on... but batch 28 is delicious.

Aaron,
This was so bad that I almost think that I got a bad batch, because I don’t believe that this could actually be sold to the public. I’m a huuuuge fan of Peaty smoky whiskies but this tasted like dirt. Undrinkable.

guest,
Upon my first tasting I wasn’t a fan, but upon repeated visits to my bottle. This whiskey has earned a specious place for me, I asks you to pay attention to it. It’s robust and Smokey but in a way that’s atypical for me to scotch. And what you’re left with aft the bite subsides is what makes it for me.
