Review #557 | /r/Bourbon Review #309 – Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey Port Finish
The Schtick: This is a wheated whiskey produced by a craft distiller, finished in port.
Distiller: Dry Fly Distilling (WA)
Bottler: Dry Fly Distilling
ABV: 43% ABV
Age: 3yrs American Oak | 6-12mo Port
Nose: Really robust port here. Sweet candy, red hots, caramel, toffee. Really reminiscent of Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond. But with port.
Taste: Thin, no heat though. Cocoa, fig, faint strawberry jam. Some caramel. Not super complex, not super robust.
Finish: Short, no heat. Port is really noticeable here. Faint bitterness.
Overall: Unique but not exciting or exceptional by any stretch. The nose and palate were pretty nice though.
Thanks for reading!
