American Sour Mash 5 yo, The Single Cask, 59,7%

Review #667
A single cask from The Single Cask with the cask number P311. Only 115 bottles were made. It is from an undisclosed distillery in Tennessee. Burned oak and caramel in the smell. Loads of corn and some freshness - like exotic fruit fresh!

A kick of alcohol followed by sweet liquid caramel in the taste. Peppery oak and spices. The finish is long and sweet. It is very warming, but really, nothing new happens here...

This isn’t very complicated, but luckily it’s cask strength, so still very flavourful. A bit longer maturation could have been interesting! Considering the high ABV, you can easily give it some water, but all it really does, is giving you some more whisky… I will give this 81/100 (20/20/21/20).
