Wood Hat Bloody Butcher Red Corn Whiskey (121 Proof)
Nose: Rich. Teriyaki/soy sauce, including both flavor and saltiness; port wine and raisin fruitiness; young green oak; grilled-to-a-light-char corn. Mild ethanol burn given the 121 proof. A very different nose than just about anything on the market.
Palate: Viscous. Initial roasted corn sweetness; red wine; late arriving spice and heat; red pepper flakes; vanilla; light ginger. The uniqueness from the nose continues.
Finish: Medium-long. Slightly sweet popcorn that is not quite kettle yet not quite butter; light teriyaki; ginger; grilled buttered/sweet-pepper corn on the cob that lingers; the young craft notes set in and hang around a bit (corn and young green oak).
