Clyde May’S Alabama Style Whiskey
Clyde May’s Alabama Style Whiskey from Conecuh Ridge Distillery bears the name of the man responsible for the brand, Clyde May. Clyde crafted his first spirits in 1946, but it wasn’t until 2001 that the distilling operation was made legal. The company built its name around this popular “Alabama Style Whiskey”, which according to their website is finished with a hint of apple and is the Official State Spirit of Alabama.
Tasting Notes Of Clyde May’s Alabama Whiskey
Deep, The Glimmering Bronze Color With Perfect Clarity.
Right from the beginning, corn and cinnamon come forward. The nose is not overpowering but quite pleasant especially as sweeter notes of butter, movie popcorn, and green apple enter the scene. As the whiskey opens up, notes of cinnamon start to fade away as the buttery notes become more prominent.
As the whiskey enters, you immediately get notes of cinnamon and allspice which are followed by some vanilla and even a hint of leather. I found the palate to be sweet which was quite pleasant as it matched up with the nose.
The whiskey had a medium finish with lingering allspice and cinnamon notes from the palate. The flavors carry to the finish as the allspice sits on the back palate for a fair amount of time and then slowly dissipates.
