So, for those of you not in the know, there was a /r/Scotch meetup at a local pub known for having a metric shit tonne (metric) of Scotch.
And during some breaks, outside of the bar, /u/Jolarbear and I made a swap. And he included 2 mystery samples.
And I gave him heck…. He was a patient man, and waited for me to finish, and then said:
“Don’t worry, they’re shit”.
So… here’s to lowering my overall average.
Price: $32.95 (CAD) at the LCBO
Region: Kentucky (Confusing, eh).
So normally I don’t talk about the colour, however in this case I’ll make an exception. Once I pour this, I guess that it’s probably unaged, based solely on the colour.
I’ve had some other moonshines, so I’m not too worried. That said… it’s going to be rough.
Nose: Stewed potato, light pepper, old caramels, old dough
Really faint nose on this. I have trouble getting anything other than ‘old person’. Which, like I’m sure everyone here will agree, just makes you want to put it in your mouth, doesn’t it?
Taste: Cooked peach, pepper, cotton, weak parsley
Not much taste. Not much bad taste either, so that’s a plus. And there’s a little bit of flavour…
Not enough to actually enjoy it mind you. At all. But there’s flavour.
Finish: Earth, flour (raw), sesame
The finish is unique, and simple, and not that great.
Conclusion: The flavours are dull, the nose is dull, and the finish gave me a headache. This isn’t that great. Better than the other sample, oddly enough, though still not worth imbibing.
Guess: Georgia Moon Corn Whiskey
Actually: Georgia Moon Corn Whiskey
