Baby Blue Corn Whisky
This is the first Texan whisky, as well as being the first whisky to be distilled from blue corn! When we first tried this we thought it was wonderful, though very "different". These days it's become a firm favourite, along with the rest of the craft distillery's fantastic releases.
Nose: Soft vanilla and notes of candied peel. Caramelised bananas, toasted oak and a little creamy cereal sweetness.
Palate: Rich, thick, palate entry. A touch of dark caramel and baked apple. Baking spices, salted butter.
Finish: Spiced, medium finish. Quite sweet.
I ordered a couple of Drams (had some friends to share it with) but each was a different colour and each was very different. the lighter coloured dram was smoother with a more Tortilla nose and Palate. the darker one has a golden syrup and pop corn nose with a much sweeter palate.
BOTH left a horrid aftertaste which lasted ages and left you mouth feeling very dry.

Cinema trip in a glass
This is lovely...sweetly different...yes the popcorn is there (weird taste for a whiskey, or a bourbon, whatever this is), and it's sweet,,but there is a slightly spicy finish and a lovely afterburn...gets better after the 5th glass...try it...you won't taste anything else like it

Like drinking salted caramel popcorn, this is smooth, sweet and delicious. Maybe a little light for some but I love it.
Don't try blending vodka and sweet popcorn for the cheap option though, not worth it.

A different, but enjoyable dram. Strong caramel, vanilla and slightly salty. Very easy and enjoyable wee dram.

Agree that it needs a little time to air and water and is pleasant either way. But doesnt blow me away. Too light and not much going on bar the slight rum like sweetness described. Much preferred the cheaper Mellow Yellow corn whiskey.
