Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Honey gold.

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Smell of apple, pear, peach and ginger brings us straight to an orchard, when roasted nuts and caramel gently kick in.

Flavour / Taste / Palate
A real pleasantry of fruits with hints of caramel, pear, cedar, anise and the grain itself.

Finish
A long and satisfying finish with an oily touch that combines all that is good in even something better.

Flavour Spiral
Pear, caramel, peach, grain, charred, vanilla, ginger, oak, apricot.

The Kosher Whiskey.

Craft distilleries used to be popular in Chicago in the times and reigns of Big Al, but after the prohibition they were all shut down. It wasn’t until 2008, when the Koval distillery re-ignited the trade in Chicago. I's one of the first small batch distilleries in Chicago, and one of the leading craft distilleries in the US. It was founded in 2008 by a young couple, Robert and Sonat, who chose to follow their hearts, instead of a logical career path based on their university degrees. Growing up Robert, who lived near Salzburg, Austria, was immersed in a culture of small batch distilling, which he effectively integrated into Koval and all of its products. The distillery supports sustainable agriculturea by producing only organic and kosher spirits and also make everything themselves – from mashing of the grains to the bottling. No outsourcing. 
 
With their approach they declared their grain-to-bottle mentality which means that every step of the production is carefully planned and exists only because it is the only acceptable way to do the things as they want them to be. This mentality brought them numerous awards and they are recognized for being one of America’s top independent, small-batch spirit producers.

Koval Single Barrel Millet Whiskey is aged in American oak casks for three years. This kosher and certified organic Whiskey is a real treat and a must-try for anybody who is up for something different.

Richard
Such a different whisky. Weird nose. Very grainy and floral. I get grass, medows, hay lofts. Finish is sweet and short. Very candy like

This is definitely a favorite. Of the five whisk(e)y that I have tried as of yet, this is one that I did not turn my nose up at.
Ryan
Smooth with a sharp note, delicious.
Bas
A bit too sharp for me
Johnmark

Jarett
Metallic noise but pleasant char and oak
Andy
Just perfect.
Shawn
Strong char with a jack flavor with a bit of a burnie finish
Graham
Orange citrus on the nose but then it turns very lemon on the palette with a strong alcohol note on the finish.
Casey
Not too bad. As described in the flavor spiral.
Sean
The best of the three I had. Amazing flavor and finish
Justin
Very very good - exceedingly smooth.
Cliff
Tips my list as a reasonably priced whiskey. Full of flavor and amazingly smooth.
Christopher
I enjoyed it. Not overly complex, but good flavor that goes down smooth.
Christopher
Unique, but bite is too heavy. Not really enjoyable.
Hugh
Very smooth, clean taste. It was a strong flavor, but not as complex as Writers Tears in the starter pack.
Greg
It was amazingly sooth!
Danny
Very smooth with some nice sweetness, great finish
Gregory
This is a nice smooth whiskey from the tasting pack. Initially it seemed a sweet but the long finish carries some of the deeper flavor that mellow out the sweetness. Might seek a full bottle of this one.
Justin
Strong start but it's got a very smooth finish and somewhat smokey aftertaste. Definitely recommend.
Sharon
So far out of our first tasting pack this is our favorite. Just having trouble finding out how to purchase a bottle.
Mani
Weird taste
iamERICan
Awesome!!! Can Taste The Charred
Jason
Pleasant nose with pear overtones. Crisp, sharp bite with lingering, fruity finish.
Gregory
I was wowed. This thing tastes amazing. For some reason I taste licorice a lot.
Craig
Harsh, bitter. Didn't care for this at all.
Adrian
Strong smell, weird taste. Too sweet!
Virgil
Very good with unique notes that sets it apart!
Matthew
Pleasantly surprised at first, based on other reviews. That pleasant surprise quickly turned sour as the Koval seems to have a quick after taste of medicine. Oddly enough though, a few minutes after finishing the first pour, I wanted another
Thomas
Aged pear on nose. Hit with some spice but quickly over run by the acetone like grain
Michael
Loved it
Nick
Harsh, a bit too much burn that overpowers the flavor
Maurizio
Light. No bitterness. Smooth.
Alan
Loved it.
Phillip
I did not care for this. I felt like the smell and taste of cloves was just to overwhelming for my taste.
Michael
As a whisky, not that pleasant. But it works fine as a snaps.
Corey
Smells like pinewood sawdust, and sort of taste like it too. Harsh/burns down the hatch. Not something I'd have again. This is a mixer whiskey. Enjoy with a Coke.
Janis
I'm being generous with 3 stars. It smells like paint thinner and the taste isn't much better. Just awful.
Brett
Not a fan at all
Jeremiah
Smelled and tasted like plastic. Maybe bad bottle?
Colin
Not impressed
Bryan
I enjoyed the fruity aromas but it tasted watered down and somewhat flat. Not complex and very short finish.
Scott
Smells like paint and was not something I would want to drink again.
KENNETH
very unusual, would like to try the koval rye, but this one has a terrible solventy nose and watery flat taste. Not complex. Not interesting. Very unusual taste - just not for me.
Deja
Smells like bananas but tastes like burnt wood.
Jacob
Fruity on the nose, relatively smooth finish. Light in color.
Matt
The chai tea of whiskeys.
Chris
Fruity. Oddly so.
Joshua
It's sweet and a little chewy. Perfect pair with building a frustrating bed frame from IKEA.
Rick
Not bad. A mild nose, with a sweet flavor, like a dessert. Would not buy a bottle, but would order if in Chicago.
Vladimir
Smooth. Millet whisky is delish-nish!
Franck
Fun and kasher whisky, taste it you'll Be surprised
