Distiller: Traverse City Whiskey Company
Bottler: Traverse City Whiskey Company
Brand: Traverse City Whiskey Company
ABV: 43% ABV
Nose: Floral, sweet, and enticingly fruity. Melon, honey, vanilla bean, jasmine and some lavender. Really complex, which surprises me, but it’s welcome all the same. Rich creme brulee is very noteworthy as I smell.
Taste: Thin on the palate, but there is lots of flavor here. Slivered almond, some peach, melon and a hint of strawberry. Oak, a bit of caramel and a hint of pepper all join in as well. Lush, lots of sweet, fruity, enticing notes. Yum.
Finish: Medium finish. A hint of ethanol, but there’s some age here that sits nicely. Honey, praline and berry are prominent as it moves on.
Overall: Surprisingly nice for a younger craft product though I expect the MGP is pulling some weight here. I appreciate the complexity of the nose and palate, and the finish ends in a satisfying manner as well. That fruity nose is very enjoyable – like strawberries and cream.
