Review #34 – Journeyman Buggy Whip Wheat Whiskey

Nose: Alcohol, acetone, and wheat/corn. Smells a bit too much like JD #7 for comfort. Syrupy, sugary, “I should probably be mixed with coke” notes.

Taste: Young. That’s all there is to say. It’s young, astringent and generally unbalanced. Corn overload. Might prefer to drink Mellow Corn. I think the only way to win, is not to play that game.

Finish: Corn. Corn. Did I say corn? Nail polish. Regret.

Overall: I don’t know what this cost, and I don’t know if it’s supposed to be good, but yikes, it’s bad. Unfortunately, I think this is a prime example of young craft product.

Thanks for reading!
