Official Tasting Notes
The nose will open with touches of light fruit: pear, apple, and caramelized bananas, as well as soft barley. On the palate, the sweet malty grain flavor will dominate and then finish with the stronger barrel notes of vanilla, more caramelized banana, toffee, and a bit of tannin spice. A touch of smoke may linger in the background from the barrel char. It will warm as it goes down…

Roughstock Montana Sweet Corn Whiskey
70cl / 50% Vol
Distilled twice in a copper still, this western style American corn whiskey has been made from 100% sweet yellow corn. After distillation only the sweet clean heart of the distillate is collected, set aside to mellow for a minimum of two weeks and then cut to 100 proof for bottling. True to the old west when whiskey wasn’t aged in barrels, this is the only style of whiskey in the United States you can call whiskey without first ageing it in a barrel.
£48.25 (£40.21 ex vat)
