TASTING NOTES OF Cedar Ridge Iowa Whiskey
Liquorice, aromatic clove, stewed orchard fruits with burnt caramel and wood char. Lots of corn, grain, and new oak. There’s a tingling of ethanol that makes its presence known, but not enough to be to unpleasant.
Silky caramel, sweet toffee popcorn, rhubarb tartness alongside peaches and vanilla cream, dark fruit jam and oak spice. Balanced herbal notes of pine and peppermint appear. Corn, light vanilla, fruit jam, a hint of pear, and oak. The palate is more interesting than the nose, however all of the flavors present are very light and you really have to hunt them out.
White pepper spice lingers, with tangy pineapple, refreshing menthol, toasted nuts and vanilla oak. White pepper, light fruits, vanilla, and fresh wood are all present at the start of the finish. These notes then fade away to just the white pepper and fresh wood, which linger for a short period.
