the one and only BUCKWHEAT
“A new breed of American whiskey is born.”
This rare buckwheat spirit is 80% buckwheat, 20% small grains.
F. PAUL PACULT’S NOTES
Four Stars, “Highly Recommended,” F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal, Dec. 2012
Pretty brown color, engaging dry aromas of chalk, cement and dry earth that are mingled with caramel and cocoa bean in the first whiffs after the pour; seven minutes later, the nose is awash in cereal grain, honeyed and toasted marshmallow notes that somehow work. Entry is gently, succulently sweet, intensely grainy and rich in vanilla extract; mid palate goes deeper than the entry or the breakfast cereal front as the taste profile enlarges by the nanosecond to include zesty flavors of beeswax, caramel, nougat/candy bar and cane syrup. A new breed of American whiskey is born.
ULTIMATE CHALLENGE TASTING NOTES:
“Very good, Strongly Recommended” 88 point rating in the 2013 Ultimate Spirit Challenge
Grainy aromas of wood chips, soil, and buckwheat have a hint of vanilla in the background. It is dry and leathery in the mouth with dark smoky flavors or roasted barley and cedar. Smokiness is long lasting.
