A wonderful Straight Bourbon with a taste of Iowa in every drop.

When the average guy thinks about Iowa, he thinks of corn. And that makes sense because they produce about eight million tons of the stuff every year. Believe it or not, Cedar Ridge Distillery started as Cedar Ridge Winery by Jeff Quint in 2005 where they distilled some of the grape juice into Brandies. The Whiskey needed to age a few years before the first Bourbon release came out in 2010. And yes, the pundits took notice, naming them "2017 Distiller of the Year" and "Best American Craft Whiskey" in 2016.

Cedar Ridge Iowa Straight Bourbon… let’s start with the specs. The mash bill is 74% corn (hey… this is Iowa), 14% malted rye, and 12% malted two-row barley. It’s aged a minimum of three years in new oak and bottled at 43% ABV. Next, we tried to count all the Gold Medals and tasting scores above 90 points, but we ran out of fingers — so let’s just say it’s won "a lot" of awards. But the flavor is what you want — you will get a healthy dose of caramels, fruit, and cornbread notes.

  • honey honey
  • caramel caramel
  • vanilla vanilla

Appearance / Color
Golden Maple

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma smells like fresh-baked sweet cornbread with whipped maple honey and notes of flan, toffee, and a bit of menthol.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile leads with Cracker Jacks and stewed plums along with vanilla, ripe pears, and toasted oak.

Finish
The finish is long and it heats up with a fruity, peppery bite.

Honey and butterscotch are on the nose and the initial palate. Vanilla cones next with some mint and cinnamon. Nicely balanced.

Nice! Very tasty. Sweet, but not overly so. Vanilla on the front and kind of slides into some maple.
