Mellow Corn, Heaven Hill
Wood varnish and vanilla, with floral and herbal notes on the nose. The palate is big and oily, fruity, with toffee apples. More fruit, cinder toffee and understated vanilla complete the finish. Young and boisterous, but fun!
- Alcohol: 50%
- Other info: Corn whiskey is made in the USA from a mash comprising at least 80 per cent corn. It differs from Bourbon in that the latter must be made from a mash containing no more than 79 per cent corn. Frequently regarded as improving little with ageing, corn whiskey has connotations of ‘moonshining,’ and is often assumed to be harsh and unsophisticated. One of the few corn whiskeys on the UK market is this offering from DSP in Bardstown, Kentucky, and while not the most multi-faceted drink in the world, it is certainly worth sampling.
